tin is iltenu (revisited)

iltenu = tin (metal) (noun) (some things Google found for "iltenu": a rare term; appears to be a scientific classification of Paleozoic crustacea; bad OCR of text word "Items"; means something in old Assyrian)

Word derivation for "tin" (metal):
Basque = eztainu, Finnish = pelti
Miresua = iltenu

My previous Miresua word for "tin" was "iltena". This is a minor revision. I decided I'd prefer to end this word with "u", like the Basque word. Some conlang housekeeping.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed because I'm using a different Finnish word. The word for tin is now itanu.
