dull (boring) is astyr

astyr = dull (boring) (adjective) (some things Google found for "astyr": an uncommon term; a rare last name notably Bobby Astyr the "Clown Prince of Porn"; Astyr is a musical artist from NYC; a rare feminine first name; user names; The North Face Women's Astyr Jacket; Uris Astyr was a French Metal band; similar Astyra was the name of an ancient Greek city)

Word derivation for "dull (boring)"
Basque = aspergarri (where suffix -garri means deserving or cause)
Finnish = tylsä
Miresua = astyr

My definition of astyr shouldn't be seen as a comment about anyone or anything called astyr. This is merely a word in my Miresua conlang language. I have nothing against people with this fine name. Astyr is a combination of letters from the Basque and the Finnish words.

Near the end of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Alice "sat on, with closed eyes, and half believed herself in Wonderland, though she knew she had but to open them again, and all would change to dull reality."
