sharp is tezorä

tezorätezorä = sharp (adjective) (some things Google found for "tezora": an uncommon to rare term; user names; an unusual feminine first name)

Word derivation for "sharp" (keen, acute):
Basque = zorrotz, Finnish = terävä
Miresua = tezorä

My Miresua word for "sharp" uses both the letters common to the Basque and Finnish words (t and r), and every letter that occurs more than once (z, o, r and ä). It also bears some similarity to the English word razor, which is something sharp.
