chain is kete
Word derivation for "chain":
Basque = kate, Finnish = ketju
Miresua = kete
I considered making this word katje, but that means kitten in Dutch and is a Danish feminine first name. In Miresua, "the chain" will become "ketea".
The Basque and the Finnish words are unusually similar. I bet that they are both, in some way, related to the Latin word for chain, catena.
In the second paragraph of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Alice considers making a daisy-chain. I'm going to deal with the words daisy and chain separately.
