Word derivation for "six"
Basque = sei, Finnish = kuusi
Miresua = sui
My previous Miresua conlang word for six was usei, which broke a couple of my self-imposed, word building rules. The word should start with a consonant, as both the Basque and Finnish words do. Also, the Miresua word shouldn't of contained the Basque word in its entirety.
The word six occurs twice in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, one of which was quoted in the previous post. It also occurs five times in Through the Looking-glass including the following bit.
Alice laughed. "There's no use trying," she said: "one CAN'T believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast...."
