wing is heipi

heipi = wing (noun) (some things Google found for "heipi": an unusual to uncommon term; rare first name and rare last name that can possibly be Chinese; user names; Acantholaimus heipi is a species of roundworm; HEIPI is an acronym for HEI Properties, Inc.; misspelling of the name Heidi; misspelling of happy; similar Heipu is the name of a place in China)

Word derivation for "wing" :
Basque = hegal, Finnish = siipi
Miresua = heipi

I found one occurrence of the plural word wings in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
...a sharp hiss made her draw back in a hurry: a large pigeon had flown into her face, and was beating her violently with its wings.
This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for wing is now sigal.
