beach is heidaratz

heidaratz = beach (noun) (some things Google found for "heidaratz": a unique term; did not match any documents)

Word derivation for "beach" :
Basque = hondartza (sand + suffix meaning large quantity)
Finnish = hiekkaranta (sand + shore)
Miresua = heidaratz (sand + edge or border)

My Miresua word for sand is heida, as seen as in the previous post. Usually I like to end my word with a vowel when both the Basque and Finnish words do, but for this, a compound word, I'll make an exception. I figured out that I could make a word meaning edge or border, with the letters I already had, without breaking any of my conlang rules. That word, ratz, will be my next word.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for beach is now hiedarratz.
