skeleton is lerukaru

lerukaru = skeleton (noun) (some things Google found for "lerukeru": an unique term, did not match any documents)

Word derivation for "skeleton":
Basque = hezurdura (hezur = bone)
Finnish = luuranko (luu = bone)
Miresua = lerukaru (leru = bone)

The first part of both the Basque and Finnish words for "skeleton" is the word for "bone". So my Miresua word starts with my word for "bone" which is "leru". I'm not quite sure what the rest if the word, "karu", means. I found the Basque suffix "-dura" in my dictionary, but I'm confounded by Finnish.

This is a word created for Halloween.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for skeleton is now lezukaru.
