lightning is txisama

txisama = lightning (noun) (some things Google found for "txisama": a very rare term; occurs on several gobbledygook webpages; similar "txi sama'n" means something in the Mayan language of Mam, occurs several times in a Mam translation of Bible)

Word derivation for "lightning" :
Basque = tximista, Finnish = salama
Miresua = txisama

The word lightning doesn't appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, although it appears in Through the Looking-Glass three times.
"The cause of lightning," Alice said very decidedly, for she felt quite certain about this, "is the thunder — no, no!" she hastily corrected herself. "I meant the other way."
