this is humä

humä = this (pronoun) (demonstrative pronoun) (Some things Google found for "huma": a very common term; Huma is an unusual to uncommon Muslim feminine first name, notably Huma Abedin who is an American political staffer; Huma Dragonbane is a heroic male fighter character in the Dragonlance gaming universe; in information technology hUMA stands for heterogeneous Unified Memory Access; Huma is an unusual last name; Hüma Chia Energy Gel is a brand of sports nutrition; Huma is the name of places in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Macedonia, Bolivia, Tonga, China, Turkey and Arkansas)

Word derivation for "this":
Basque = hau, Finnish = tämä
Miresua = humä

In an attempt to add some more grammar to Miresua, my next few words will be demonstrative pronouns.

I've learned that Basque has ordinary and intensive (or emphatic) demonstratives. The Basque word I'm using to make this word is the ordinary one, or basic form. I don't know if I'll deal with intensive demonstratives in Miresua.

The word this appears many, many times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but often as a determiner or adverb.
She drew her foot as far down the chimney as she could, and waited till she heard a little animal (she couldn't guess of what sort it was) scratching and scrambling about in the chimney close above her: then, saying to herself "This is Bill," she gave one sharp kick, and waited to see what would happen next.
