brown is reisma (redone)

reisma = brown (color) (adjective) (some things Google found for "reisma": a rare term; a last name which can be Dutch or Estonian; Resima Refrigeration of the Canary Islands in Spain; user names)

Word derivation for "brown" :
Basque = marroi, Finnish = ruskea
Miresua = reisma

This word was redone. Nothing against my previous word for brown which was karrei. It was merely too similar to my new word for yellow.

For my new word for brown, I took the opportunity to start the Miresua word with R, which is always allowable when the Finnish source word starts with R. (Basque doesn't believe in starting words with the letter R).

This Miresua conlang word has been redone. The word for brown is now rumare.
