harbor is tarmu (revisited)

tarmu = harbor (noun) (some things Google found for "tarmu": an uncommon term; a rare last name, notably jazz vibraphonist Eldad Tarmu; a rare masculine first name that can be Estonian; name of a gaming character)

Word derivation for "harbor":
Basque = portu, Finnish = satama
Miresua = tarmu

My previous Miresua conlang for harbor was torma. This is another change to reduce the number of nouns ending in -A. The word is a bit of an alphabetic scramble, but it starts with T, the letter in common between the Basque and the Finnish words.

The word harbor (or harbour) doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-glass.
