light is varo (noun) (revisited)

varo = light (noun) (some things Google found for "varo": a common term; an uncommon last name, notably surrealist painter Remedios Varo; a unusual first name that is usually masculine; Varo Baseball bat weights; means ware, trade good, merchandise in Esperanto; means (nautical) launch or launching in Italian; in Spanish a conjugation of the verb varar meaning to beach or run aground; similar varoa in Finnish means beware of, be careful with, look out for; name of a place in Denmark; Varo Diaz is the name of a place in the Dominican Republic)

Word derivation for "light" (noun) :
Basque = argi, Finnish = valo
Miresua = varo

This is the Miresua word for the noun light, an electromagnetic wave, a source of light. My previous Miresua word for light, the noun, was vigo.

The noun light doesn't appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but it appears twice in Through the Looking-Glass.
"I see nobody on the road," said Alice.

"I only wish I  had such eyes," the King remarked in a fretful tone. "To be able to see Nobody! And at that distance, too! Why, it's as much as I  can do to see real people, by this light!"
