Word derivation for "chicken" :
Basque = oilasko, Finnish = kana
Miresua = oikano
My previous Miresua conlang word for chicken was onoilaka. I'm changing this word to use another, better Finnish word for chicken, the bird. The Finnish word I used previously, kananpoika, also means chicken, but as a chick, and as chicken meat as food.
The word chicken doesn't appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. But chicken, the bird, appears in Through the Looking-glass.
It certainly was a VERY large Gnat: "about the size of a chicken," Alice thought. Still, she couldn't feel nervous with it, after they had been talking together so long.
