three is hirme (revisited)

hirme = three (number) (adjective) (some things Google found for "hirme": a uncommon term; a rare first name possibly a form of Hiram; a very rare last name; Hirme Washing Machines of Watford in the UK; in Spanish similar irme means go, leave; similar hirm means fear in Estonian; Al Hirme is a village in Syria)

Word derivation for "three" :
Basque = hiru, Finnish = kolme
Miresua = hirme

My previous Miresua word for three was herko. I'm starting a round of revisions of numbers.

The word three occurs many times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
"Well, I should like to be a LITTLE larger, sir, if you wouldn't mind," said Alice: "three inches is such a wretched height to be."

"It is a very good height indeed!" said the Caterpillar angrily, rearing itself upright as it spoke (it was exactly three inches high).
This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for three is now kire.
