throat is ezturku

ezturku = throat (noun) (some things Google found for "ezturku": a very rare term; appears in Bosnian text about football (soccer) perhaps as a last name; similar ez türkü appears on several Turkish webpages and translates as crush folk song; several webpages mention similar car rental EZ Turku, Finland (E-Z Rent-A-Car in Turku); similar Ezturk is a very rare last name)

Word derivation for "throat" :
Basque = eztarri, Finnish = kurkku
Miresua = ezturku

Another new body part word. The throat is the passage from the mouth to the stomach or to the lungs, and the front part of the neck.

The Finnish word, kurkku, has a second meaning, with different etymology, of cucumber.

I found two occurrences of the word throat in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
Some of the birds hurried off at once: one old Magpie began wrapping itself up very carefully, remarking, "I really must be getting home; the night-air doesn't suit my throat!"
