brass is mestoi (revisited)
mestoi = brass (metal alloy) (noun) (some things Google found for "mestoi": an uncommon term; rap MP3 song "Hyvii Mestoi" by Antenni who seem to be Finnish even though the title doesn’t quite translate; similar mesta is Finnish slang for a place or joint; user names; a misspelling, perhaps deliberately, of Spanish "me estoy" which means "I'm"; seems to mean full in Greek (transliterated); similar mesto means city in Slovak)
Word derivation for "brass" :
Basque = letoi, Finnish = messinki
Miresua = mestoi
My previous Miresua word for brass was melitsi, which was rather an odd word.
