river is jobai (revisited)

jobaijobai = river (noun) (some things Google found for "jobai"; an uncommon to rare term; a rare last name; user names; a rare first name which can be feminine or masculine; Jobai haystack dance figure and woven masks of Sierra Leone and Liberia; the name of a village in Bangladesh)

Word derivation for "river" :
Basque = ibai, Finnish = joki
Miresua = jobai

My previous Miresua word for "river" was "okai". To make a better alphabetic mix, I decided to make my new word 5 letters long. I allow myself one more letter in length than the longer of my two source words.
