today is gaunän (revisited)

gaunän = today (adverb) (some things Google found for "gaunan": an uncommon term; a rare last name; user names; name of a place in North Cotabato province in the Philippines; part of island names in Basilan province in the Philippines)

Word derivation for "today":
Basque = gaur, Finnish = tänään
Miresua = gaunän

My previous Miresua conlang word for today was gänan. I decided to make this a 6-letter word. There are more than enough 5-letter words.

The word today (actually as to-day) occurs four times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

The Cheshire cat asked Alice, "Do you play croquet with the Queen to-day?"
