hard is goka (revisited)

goka = hard (adjective) (some things Google found for "goka": a common term; Goka Station is a railway station in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan; Goka, the Pyre of Malice is the name of a Yu-Gi-Oh! card; a unusual last name; Goka Bicycles of Pamplona, Spain; Shanghai GOKA Sports Motor Co. Ltd of China (AKA GK Motor Sports Inc) makes dune buggies; a rare first name; name of a town in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan; name of places in Ghana and Chad)

Word derivation for "hard" (tough, resistant to pressure):
Basque = gogor, Finnish = kova
Miresua = goka

My previous Miresua word for hard (tough) was govar.

The word hard appears eight times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but not once with this meaning.
