Word derivation for "bird" :
Basque = txori, Finnish = lintu
Miresua = txitu
My previous Miresua word for bird was tirlu, which was an odd alphabetic scramble I constructed back in 2009. For my new word, I thought I'd let my word for bird start with TX. In Miresua, as in Basque, TX is pronounced like CH.
The word bird, plus birds, occurs a dozen times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
"Very true," said the Duchess: "flamingoes and mustard both bite. And the moral of that is -- 'Birds of a feather flock together.'"
"Only mustard isn't a bird," Alice remarked.
