green is virbe (revisited)

virbe = green (color) (adjective) (some things Google found for "virbe": a rare term; user names; VirBe is a Dutch company that offers business addresses; Virbe is a young Australian musical artist; name of a company in Finland; a rare first name; Virbe and Virbé are very rare last names; name of a gaming character; similar Virbi is the name of a place in Latvia)

Word derivation for "green" :
Basque = berde, Finnish = vihreä
Miresua = virbe

My previous Miresua conlang word for green was irbe, so this is another small change. As both the Basque word and the Finnish word start with a consonant, the Miresua word really should too.

The word green can be found four times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This quote is from the scene where Alice grows huge after eating a piece of mushroom.
"...all she could see, when she looked down, was an immense length of neck, which seemed to rise like a stalk out of a sea of green leaves that lay far below her."
This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for green is now bereä.
