snow is elmi (revisited)

elmielmi = snow (noun) (some things Google found for "elmi": an uncommon to rare term; an uncommon last name than can be Italian and can be Somali; Elmi Karbordi (University of applied science) in Iran; a Swedish and Finnish first name that can be feminine; ELMI is an acronym for European Light Microscopy Initiative; ELMI Ltd of Latvia sells laboratory equipment; means helmets in Italian)

Word derivation for "snow" :
Basque = elur, Finnish = lumi
Miresua = elmi

My previous Miresua conlang word for snow was irul, which was an odd scramble of letters. The new word starts like the Basque word and ends like the Finnish word.
