ocean is oztari (revisitied)

oztari = ocean (noun) (some things Google found for "oztari": a rare term; user names; Ostari and Öztarı are very rare last names; ERDOĞAN ÖZTARI is a household security company in Bursa, Turkey)

Word derivation for "ocean" :
Basque = ozeano (likely a borrowed word)
Finnish = valtameri (compound word: mighty or great + sea)
Miresua = oztari

My previous Miresua conlang word for ocean was oztera. I'm trying to lessen the number of words ending in A, for grammar reasons. Besides, neither the Basque word or the Finnish word end in A.

The word ocean doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-glass.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for ocean is now ozteri.
