dark is tumun (of color)

tumun = dark (adjective) (some things Google found for "tumun": a uncommon term; TUMUN is an acronym for Thammasat University Model United Nations; Tumun-ghâr is a place in Lord of the Rings Online game; a rare last name; means egg in Chumash which is a Native American language of California; Tumun is the name of places in South Korea; similar Tumun-dong and Tumun-gol are the name of places in North Korea and South Korea)

Word derivation for "dark" (of color):
Basque = ilun, Finnish = tumma (dark of color)
Miresua = tumun

As Finnish has two words for dark, now so does Miresua.

The word dark appears three times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but not with this meaning.
