hat is hapa

hapa = hat (noun) (some things Google found for "hapa": a very common term; a Hawaiian term used to describe a person of mixed Asian or Pacific Islander racial or ethnic heritage; Hapa Sushi Grill in the Denver area; Hapa Ramen of San Francisco; HAPA is a Hawaiian music group; an uncommon last name; means here in Swahili; name of cities in Ghana and Burma)

Word derivation for "hat":
Basque = kapela, Finnish = hattu
Miresua = hapa

The Finnish word resembles the English word hat. The Basque word resembles cap. So I made my Miresua word like a mix of hat and cap. I wanted to use that P. The word is short, one letter less than the shorter word, the Finnish word, but that's allowable under my rules.

This Miresua word has been changed. The word for hat is now kaptu.
