those are huok

huok = those (pronoun) (demonstrative pronoun) (Some things Google found for "huok": an uncommon term; a rare last name; a rare first name; user names; in English Glossic (Ingglosh Glosik) which was a 19th century spelling system for English an added apostrophe is called hook and spelled huok; means pig in Abau which is a language of Papua New Guinea; similar Phu Huak (or Phou Huak) is a mountain in Laos; similar Huoka is a place in Yunnan, China)

Word derivation for "those":
Basque = horiek, Finnish = nuo
Miresua = huok

In Basque, the word those is a plural of that, and these is a plural of this. My Miresua words are constructed so they retain some of that similarly, but those is not a plural of that.

I found the word those ten times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, mostly as a determiner. Perhaps I can use huok as a determiner, too.
"How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

"How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spread his claws,
And welcome little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!"
"I'm sure those are not the right words," said poor Alice...
