hill is muiki (revisited)

muiki = hill (noun) (some things Google found for "muiki": an unusual term; user names; a rare first name that can be Japanese; a rare last name; Muiki Shop is an East African gifts stall in the Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis, MN; name of a World of Warcraft character)

Word derivation for "hill" :
Basque = muino, Finnish = mäki
Miresua = muiki

My previous Miresua conlang word for hill was moikä. This is another modification to avoid ending a noun in -Ä.

I couldn't find the word hill in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but there are a handful of occurrences in Through the Looking-glass.
"...It's more like a corkscrew than a path! Well, THIS turn goes to the hill, I suppose -- no, it doesn't! This goes straight back to the house!"
