lettuce is letxati

letxati = lettuce (noun) (some things Google found for "letxati": a nearly unique term; similar lekhati or lekxati means "now, right now, just now, a short time" in the extinct Biloxi Native American language; a bad OCR of the word legati in a medieval Latin book)

Word derivation for "lettuce":
Basque = letxu (Spanish is lechuga)
Finnish = lehtisalaatti (lehti = leaf, newspaper; salaatti = salad)
Miresua = letxati

With a word for lettuce, I end this string of vegetable words.
