rust is ruodel (revisited)

ruodel = rust (noun) (some things Google found for "ruodel": a rare term; a very rare last name; user names; bad OCR of text of the word model)

Word derivation for "rust" :
Basque = herdoil, Finnish = ruoste
Miresua = ruodel

My previous Miresua conlang word for rust was reislo. That word was too much of an alphabetic scramble, plus I want to use the UO vowel combination from the Finnish word.

The word rust doesn't appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Although it does appear once in Through the Looking-Glass in a long poem sung by The White Knight.
"I heard him then, for I had just
Completed my design
To keep the Menai bridge from rust
By boiling it in wine."
