street is kalu

kalukalu = street (noun) (some things Google found for "kalu": an uncommon term; KALU is the Nasdaq stock symbol for Kaiser Aluminum Corp.; Kalu Rinpoche (1905-1989) was a Tibetan Buddhist master and teacher; user names, a last name which can be Nigerian; name of places in Pakistan, North Korea, India, Iran, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Papua New Guinea, and Sudan)

Word derivation for "street":
Basque = kale, Finnish = katu
Miresua = kalu

Both the Basque and Finnish words start with "ka", so I've also started my Miresua conlang word with "ka", and there's very little scrambling of letters.
