Word derivation for "rain" :
Basque = euri, Finnish = sade
Miresua = ude
My previous Miresua conlang word for rain was dure, which was an alphabetic scramble. The new word is one letter shorter than the Basque and the Finnish words, but that's allowable under my rules.

"I see you're admiring my little box." the Knight said in a friendly tone. "It's my own invention -- to keep clothes and sandwiches in. You see I carry it upside-down, so that the rain can't get in."
"But the things can get OUT," Alice gently remarked. "Do you know the lid's open?"
