air is aile (revisited)

aile = air (noun) (Some things Google found for "aile": an uncommon term; an unusual usually feminine first name; an unusual last name; name of a female character in Mega Man ZX video game; AILE grupa of Latvia; means wing in French; means fire in Manx; means family in Turkish; Aile Castle in Switzerland; name of places in Nigeria and China)

Word derivation for "air" :
Basque = aire, Finnish = ilma
Miresua = aile

My previous Miresua conlang word for air was eila. I swapped around the A and the E. I'm trying to lessen the number of nouns ending in -A.

The word air, as in Earth's atmosphere, appears about a dozen times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
...she noticed a curious appearance in the air: it puzzled her very much at first, but, after watching it a minute or two, she made it out to be a grin, and she said to herself "It's the Cheshire Cat: now I shall have somebody to talk to."
