Word derivation for "orange (fruit)" :
Basque = laranja, Finnish = appelsiini
Miresua = laperni
My previous word for orange (fruit), from only a few months ago, was laperani. I'm tweaking this word, slightly simplifying it. A rather small change.
The Basque word for orange, laranja, is the same as the Portuguese. The Finnish word for orange is apparently derived from Old Swedish appelsin, meaning "Chinese apple".
The word orange appears one time in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, when Alice falls down the rabbit-hole.
She took down a jar from one of the shelves as she passed; it was labelled 'ORANGE MARMALADE'...
