small is tseni

tseni = small (adjective) (some things Google found for "tseni": an uncommon term; "Siphra' Di-tseni`utha'" in spiritual theosophy is a Chaldean book of mysteries related to the Hebrew Qabbalah; "Tseni'ut" is Jewish standards of modesty in dress and behavior particularly as relating to women; in computer science TSENI stands for Transition Systems Elementary Net Systems; something in Bulgarian; seem to be a Russian and Bulgarian feminine first name)

A Miresua word is combination of the letters in the Basque and Finnish words. This word is an example of my only exception to that rule. After much thought, I decided to modify the "tx" in Basque to "ts".

Word derivation for "small" :
Basque = txiki, Finnish = pieni
Miresua = tseni

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. I changed my mind and decided to use "tx". The word for "small" is now "nitxi".
