corner is izkuma

izkuma = corner (noun) (some things Google found for "izkuma": a rare term; user names which are often Japanese; in Serbo-Croatian similar iz Kuma seems to mean The Godfather)

Word derivation for "corner":
Basque = izkina, Finnish = kulma
Miresua = izkuma

There are other words in Basque and Finnish for corner. I think that these words are best for the meaning of corner, as in street corner.

The word corner appears four times (and corners once) in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
She was close behind it when she turned the corner, but the Rabbit was no longer to be seen...
