bell is kolna

kolna = bell (noun) (some things Google found for "kolna": an uncommon term; a last name, notably Jan z Kolna (also known as Johannes Scolvus and John of Kolno) a semi-legendary Polish sailor sailing for Denmark who allegedly reached America before Columbus in 1476; "The Kolna Conflict" is a story by Julie Peters; Kolna Ltd. of Norfolk in the UK sells marquees, tents and floor; means "all of us" in Arabic (transliterated); name of a city in the Czech Republic)

Word derivation for "bell" :
Basque = kanpai, Finnish = kello
Miresua = kolna

This word, kolna, is for the actual thing that is rung, not the sound made by it. My Miresua word starts with a K because both the Basque and the Finnish words start with a K.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for bell is now kenpo.
