hawk is aukore (revisited)

aukore = hawk (bird) (noun) (some things Google found for "aukore": a rare term; user names; seems to be a rare Polynesian name; means something in Ainu; means something in a language of Namibia; bad OCR of old text documents, including several bad scans of the Latin word auctore which can mean originator or author)

Word derivation for "hawk" :
Basque = aztore, Finnish = haukka (hawk or falcon)
Miresua = aukore

My previous Miresua conlang word for hawk was aukora. This is a minor change to lessen, but not to eliminate, the number of nouns ending in -A. Why I'm making these changes is because a suffix of -A will be added to nouns for the definite article in Miresua, and I'd rather not have a large number of -AA endings.

The word hawk does not appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-Glass.
