ear is korari (revisited)

korari = ear (noun) (some things Google found for "korari": an uncommon term; a native New Zealand flax plant; Naot Footwear's Korari shoe is a women's Mary Jane flat; user name; a street name in Auckland, New Zealand; Korari Cave in action RPG game Torchlight II; name of a jungle planet in the game Aliens versus Predator 2; a rare last name; name of a place in Bihar, India)

Word derivation for "ear" :
Basque = belarri, Finnish = korva
Miresua = korari

My previous Miresua conlang word for ear was kobera. This is another of my updates to lessen the number of nouns ending in -A.

The word ear (and also ears) occurs in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, including this quote referring to the Cheshire Cat.
The only things in the kitchen that did not sneeze, were the cook, and a large cat which was sitting on the hearth and grinning from ear to ear.
