stick is kalpi (revisited)

kalpi = stick (cane) (noun) (Some things Google found for "kalpi": an uncommon term; Hesh Kalpi Tone powder is a hair color treatment product; Kalpi Institute of Technology; Kalpi Collection is a clothing store in India; kalpi means servants in Latvian; a rare to unusual first name; a rare last name; name of a city in India; name of a municipality in Ambala, India)

Word derivation for "stick (cane)" :
Basque = makila, Finnish = keppi
Miresua = kalpi

My previous Miresua conlang word for stick was pelka, which was a bit of an alphabetic scramble. The new word doesn't end in -A.

The word stick appears a handful of times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
...Alice dodged behind a great thistle, to keep herself from being run over; and the moment she appeared on the other side, the puppy made another rush at the stick, and tumbled head over heels in its hurry to get hold of it...
