what is zemi

zemizemi = what (interrogative, pronoun) (some things Google found for "zemi": a very common term; Zemi or Cemi are small idols of various local deities once worshipped by the Caribbean Taino peoples; Zemi Restaurant for Asian Fusion food in NYC; Hen Zemi (or Hen Semi) (aka Abnormal Physiology Seminar) is a Japanese comedy manga and anime; in Japan a zemi is a seminar course of around ten university students for studying and researching a topic; abura zemi is the Japanese cicada; a rare last name; Zemi Beach is located on the Caribbean island of Anguilla)

Word derivation for "what" :
Basque = zer, Finnish = mikä or mitä
Miresua = zemi

What! I had no word for what? What can I say?

This word is from the paragraph that I'm working on. Saying that I'm translating this paragraph would be a bit of an overstatement. It's a bit of challenge.
