dry is kuhor (revisited)

kuhor = dry (adjective) (some things Google found for "kuhor": an unusual term; user names; a rare last name; name of a World of Warcraft character; similar kuhar means a cook in Croatian and Slovenian; similar Kuhorn is the name of a place in Germany)

Word derivation for "dry":
Basque = lehor, Finnish = kuiva
Miresua = kuhor

My previous Miresua conlang word for dry was kevor. I think that the new word is less of an alphabetic scramble.

The word dry appears eight times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. At the end of Alice's fall down the rabbit-hole:
"...thump! thump! down she came upon a heap of sticks and dry leaves, and the fall was over."
