city is haurki (revisited)

haurki = city (noun) (some things Google found for "haurki": a rare term; user names; a very rare last name; misspelling of the first name of Japanese writer Haruki Murakami; similar Hauraki is a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand; similar Radio Hauraki is a New Zealand modern rock radio network)

Word derivation for "city" :
Basque = hiri, Finnish = kaupunki
Miresua = haurki

My previous Miresua conlang word for city was huarki. This is a small change, a flipping of vowels, because I don't think UA should be a valid vowel combination for the middle of a word.

The word city doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-glass.
