silk is setki (revisited)

setki = silk (noun) (some things Google found for "setki": a common term; setki means hundreds (numeral) in Polish, an overwhelming result; a rare first name; a rare last name; Malyye Setki is the name of a place in Russia; name of places in Poland (aka Sętki) and Russia)

Word derivation for "silk":
Basque = zeta, Finnish = silkki
Miresua = setki

My previous Miresua conlang word for silk was ziska. This is part of my ongoing series of revisions to lessen, but not eliminate, the number of nouns ending in -A, for grammar reasons.

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