leather is narku (revisited)

narku = leather (noun) (some things Google found for "narku": an uncommon term; a rare first name and a rare last name, notably Nii Narku Quaynor from Ghana known for his role in development of the Internet in Africa; name of a World of Warcraft character; similar Narkû is the name of an uruk type of orc creature in Lord of the Rings Online; similar naraku means hell (Buddhism) in Japanese romaji; name of places in Nepal and Iran)

Word derivation for "leather" :
Basque = larru, Finnish = nahka
Miresua = narku

My previous Miresua conlang word for leather was narra. I'm changing this word so that it doesn't end in -A.

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