fence is aisi (revisited)

aisi = fence (noun) (some things Google found for "aisi": a very common term; AISI is an acronym for the American Iron and Steel Institute which is an association of North American steel producers; a rare first name; a rare last name; AISI is an acronym for Alberta Initiative for School Improvement; AISI stands for African Information Society Initiative; apparently a word in Urdu (transliterated), Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi (2005) is the title of an Indian movie)

Word derivation for "fence":
Basque = hesi, Finnish = aita
Miresua = aisi

My previous Miresua conlang word for fence was eisa. The new word starts like the Finnish word and ends like the Basque word. As a bonus, the word no longer ends in A. I'm trying to lessen the number of nouns ending in A.

As a side note - aita, the Finnish word for fence, means father in Basque.
