leather is narra (revisited)

narra = leather (noun) (some things Google found for "narra": a very common term; name of the tree and exotic wood also known as padauk; a last name; Commander Narra is a minor Star Wars character; user names; a feminine first name; means "narrates" in Italian and Spanish; means "to fool" in Swedish; name of cities in the Philippines and India)

Word derivation for "leather" :
Basque = larru, Finnish = nahka
Miresua = narra

My previous Miresua conlang word for leather was halra. I'm changing this word because the "lr" consonant combination was odd, and I don't know if it occurs in either Basque or Finnish.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for leather is now narku.
