Word derivation for "dog":
Basque = txakur, Finnish = koira
Miresua = kotxar
My previous Miresua word for dog was txora, which I posted way back in 2008. I'm changing this word so that it no longer ends in -A, and also because the new word is, in my opinion, a slightly better mix. In Miresua, as in Basque, TX is pronounced like CH.
The word dog, plus dogs, occurs six times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
