dog is txora (revisited)

txora = dog (animal) (noun) (some things Google found for "txora": an uncommon to rare term; user names; txora-txora means something in Basque or Catalan; similar to the "txori" which is the Basque word for "bird", and Txoria Txori which is the title of an old Basque song that Joan Baez has recorded)

Word derivation for "dog":
Basque = txakur, Finnish = koira
Miresua = txora

My previous word for dog was tokra. After much consideration, I decided to change this word to use the TX consonant combination from Basque. In Basque (and Catalan) TX is pronounced like CH. This word would be pronounced like chora.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for dog is now kotxar.
