week is asko (revisited)

asko = week (noun) (some things Google found for "asko": a very common term; Asko Cylinda (Asko Appliances AB) is a Swedish company producing major household appliances; Asko Group of Washington state paints, plates and reconditions metal parts; an unusual to uncommon masculine first name that can be Finnish; Asko Ensemble is a Dutch chamber orchestra; a rare last name; similar Askø is a Danish island; name of places in Sweden)

Word derivation for "week" :
Basque = aste, Finnish = viikko
Miresua = asko

My previous Miresua conlang word for week was oska. I changed it because I'm trying to reduce the number of words ending in A, and especially when the Basque and the Finnish words don't end in A.
