rope is köso (revisited)

köso = rope (noun) (Some things Google found for "köso" or koso": a common term; KOSO manufactures motorcycle gauges and accessories; Köso or Koso is an unusual last name; a rare first name; KOSO is a FM radio station in the Modesto, California area; Koso India manufactures industrial equipment; Koso or California earthquake gas shut-off valves; similar kősó means rock salt in Hungarian; koso means for sure (emphasis) in Japanese (transliterated); name of places in Nigeria, Indonesia, Solomon Islands, the Republic of the Congo, and the Philippines)

Word derivation for "rope":
Basque = soka, Finnish = köysi
Miresua = köso

My previous Miresua conlang word for rope was kösa. This is a minor change to make it so that the word doesn't end in -A.

I found one occurrence of the word rope in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
-- Here, Bill! catch hold of this rope -- Will the roof bear? -- Mind that loose slate -- Oh, it's coming down! Heads below!' (a loud crash) --
