middle is ereki

ereki = middle (noun) (some things Google found for "ereki": an uncommon term; Heart Ereki is a single by female Japanese idol group AKB48; Ereki no Wakadaishō (translation: The young electric guitar wizard) is a 1965 Japanese movie with the USA title of Campus A-Go-Go; Ereki Magnetic Changeable Lampshades of the UK; user names; a rare last name that can be Hungarian; ereki means electric guitar in Japanese; similar Ereke is the name of a place in Indonesia)

Word derivation for "middle" :
Basque = erdi (also can mean half)
Finnish = keski- and keskikohta
Miresua = ereki

The words center and middle are close in meaning in English, and even closer in Finnish. I think of center of a circle, and middle of a line.

In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Alice thought, "When I used to read fairy-tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one!"
