elegant is dotylä

dotylä = elegant (adjective) (Some things Google found for "dotyla": a rare to unusual term; user names; a very rare name; dotyla seems to mean something in Polish but I'm unable to translate it)

Word derivation for "elegant" :
Basque = dotore, Finnish = tyylikäs
Miresua = dotylä

This is a new word. There are very few words in Miresua that start with D, so I'm taking the opportunity to make one here.

I found the word elegant once in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It appears in Chapter 3: A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale.
"Then they all crowded round her once more, while the Dodo solemnly presented the thimble, saying "We beg your acceptance of this elegant thimble"; and, when it had finished this short speech, they all cheered."
