yesterday is ailo (revisited)

ailo = yesterday (adverb) (some things Google found for "ailo": a common term; an unusual Scandinavian masculine first name, notably Ailo Gaup which is the name of a Sámi author and also a Norwegian motocross rider; AILO is an acronym for the Association of International Life Offices; AILO is an acronym for American Indian Liaison Office; an unusual last name; Ailo is a dance band project; Ailo-Atynakovo is the name of a place in Russia; name of a place in Papua New Guinea)

Word derivation for "yesterday":
Basque = atzo, Finnish = eilen
Miresua = ailo

My previous Miresua conlang word for yesterday was azei. I changed this word because I didn't want the diphthong to be on the end of the word.

The word yesterday occurs three times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Soon after Alice first enlarged, she said, "Dear, dear! How queer everything is to-day! And yesterday things went on just as usual...."
