these is humäk

humäk = these (pronoun) (demonstrative pronoun) (Some things Google found for "humak": an uncommon term; Humak University of Applied Sciences in Finland (Finnish: Humanistinen ammattikorkeakoulu); HumAk Law students' Humanitarian Action of Norway; Humak is an unusual to rare last name; Humak is the name of a World of Warcraft character; humak means barrow in Croatian; Model Town Humak is a suburb of Islamabad, Pakistan; Humak is name of another place in Pakistan)

Word derivation for "these":
Basque = hauek, Finnish = nämä
Miresua = humäk

The ending of -k on this word makes it look sort of like a Basque plural, but unfortunately not like a Miresua plural.

The word these appears fourteen times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, a majority of the times as a determiner. I may be able to use humäk as a determiner, too.
First came ten soldiers carrying clubs; these were all shaped like the three gardeners, oblong and flat, with their hands and feet at the corners: next the ten courtiers; these were ornamented all over with diamonds, and walked two and two, as the soldiers did.
