year is vute (revisited)

vute = year (noun) (some things Google found for "vute": an uncommon term; an unusual last name; user names; a Mambiloid language of Cameroon and Nigeria; a misspelling of cute; means empty in Picard which is a language closely related to French; may mean something in Bengali (transliterated); Vute (aka Wute) is the name of a place in Ghana)

Word derivation for "year":
Basque = urte, Finnish = vuosi
Miresua = vute

My previous Miresua conlang word for year was veiru. I thought I'd try another mix of letters.

In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the word year appears twice, and years appears once.

After Alice remarked that the Hatter had a funny watch, The Hatter muttered, "Does YOUR watch tell you what year it is?"
