apple is samena (revisited)

samena = apple (noun) (some things Google found for "samena": an uncommon term; Samena Swim & Recreation Club of Bellevue, Washington; SAMENA is an acronym for the region covering South Asia (India), Middle East and North Africa such as in SAMENA Telecommunications Council and Samena Capital investment group; Samena Squares is Seattle Eastside Square Dance club; user names; an unusual feminine first name; a rare last name; name of a place in Cote D'Ivoire)

Word derivation for "apple" :
Basque = sagar, Finnish = omena
Miresua = samena

My previous word for apple was gemar, which was a bit of an alphabetic mishmash. My new word, samena, starts like the Basque word and ends like the Finnish word.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for apple is now sagen.
