glass is laire (revisited)

laire = glass (noun) (some things Google found for "laire": an uncommon term; LAIRE is an acronym for Live Action Interactive Roleplaying Explorers; user names; an unusual last name; de Laire and O'Laire are rare last names; an unusual first name that can be feminine or masculine; in Old French laire means to allow; name of a town in eastern France)

Word derivation for "glass" :
Basque = beira, Finnish = lasi
Miresua = laire

My previous Miresua conlang word for glass was seila. My new word is less of an alphabetic scramble, plus does not end in a.

The word glass appears ten times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, often as an adjective, and once as a "looking-glass".

Alice "found she had forgotten the little golden key, and when she went back to the table for it, she found she could not possibly reach it: she could see it quite plainly through the glass..."
