copper is kopri (revisited)
kopri = copper (metal) (noun) (some things Google found for "kopri": a common term; an unusual last name; KOPRI is an acronym for Korean Polar Research Institute; Hip-Hop/Rap artist KOPRI; Croatian musician Dean Kopri; In the New Jedi Order era in the Star Wars universe name of a female Twi'lek; Kopri Signs and Graphics LLC; name of a primarily residential Colony in India)
Word derivation for "copper" :
Basque = kobre, Finnish = kupari
Miresua = kopri
My previous Miresua word for copper was kepra. For that word, I really mixed up the vowels. My new word starts like the Basque word, and ends like the Finnish word.
