beet is jurmotxas (revisited)
Word derivation for "beet":
Basque = erremolatxa (similar to Spanish remolacha)
Finnish = juurikas (also punajuurikas, where puna means red)
Miresua = jurmotxas
My previous Miresua conlang word for beet, the vegetable, was juremitxa. As in Finnish, the j is pronounced like consonantal y. As in Basque, the tx is pronounced like ch.
As I expected, the word beet doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-glass.
