sixteen is suitima
Word derivation for "sixteen" :
Basque = hamasei (from ten + six)
Finnish = kuusitoista (six + -teen)
Miresua = suitima (six + -teen)
This new word is also more Finnish than Basque, but hopefully not too much so. I want some regularity in Miresua.
The word sixteen doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-glass. Although I found out that fifteen does, so I've updated my previous post.
