sand is herkan

herkan = sand (noun) (some things Google found for "herkan": an uncommon to rare term; user names; an unusual last name; name of a male Thoroughbred horse; orc character on World of Warcraft; similar word "herkän" seems to mean something in Finnish but I'm unable to translate it; a place in Iran)

Word derivation for "sand":
Basque = hondar, Finnish = hiekka
Miresua = herkan

My Miresua conlang word for sand is a six-letter word starting with h, because the Basque and Finnish words for sand are both six-letter words starting with h.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for sand is now hiedar.

The word for "sand" in Hungarian is "homok". I think it's interesting that this word also starts with an "h".
