millet is hirtxi

hirtxi = millet (noun) (some things Google found for "hirtxi": a very rare term; a user name; bad OCR of old texts; similarly pronounced Hirchi is a uncommon last name)

Word derivation for "millet" :
Basque = artatxiki (where arta- means corn, txiki = small)
Finnish = hirssi
Miresua = hirtxi

Millet is small-seeded grain used for food and fodder. Millet is generally suitable for gluten-free diets. Millet is often used in bird food, and in Miresua I have a considerable number of words for birds.

Back to grain, this is another word from my small reserve of words.
