tin is iltena (revisited)

iltena = tin (metal) (noun) (some things Google found for "iltena": a rare term; a user name; Iltena SA de CV is possibly the name of a company in Spain; similar word "biltena" appears to mean something in a language of the former Yugoslavia)

Word derivation for "tin" (metal):
Basque = eztainu, Finnish = pelti
Miresua = iltena

My previous Miresua word for "tin" was "litena". This is a minor change to put two consonants in a row to better imitate the look of the Basque and Finnish words.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed because I'm using a different Finnish word. The word for tin is now itanu.
