Word derivation for "sweet" (taste):
Basque = gozo, Finnish = makea
Miresua = mozea
My previous Miresua conlang word for sweet was moze, but before that it was mozea. I've decided that only nouns, not adjectives, get a suffix of -A when used with the definite article. Hence I have no issues whatsoever about ending adjectives in -A and -Ä, and even -EA and -EÄ.
The word sweet can be found once in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This quote is from the Duchess.
"...Maybe it's always pepper that makes people hot-tempered," she went on, very much pleased at having found out a new kind of rule, "and vinegar that makes them sour -- and camomile that makes them bitter -- and -- and barley-sugar and such things that make children sweet-tempered."
