cow is lehi (revisited)

lehi = cow (animal) (noun) (some things Google found for "lehi": a common term; Lehi is a prophet from the Book of Mormon; Lehi was a 1940s Jewish/Zionist militant group; Lehi or Ramath Lehi was a biblical place in Judah where Samson killed a thousand Philistines with the jawbone of a donkey; an unusual masculine first name; an unusual to last name; name of a community in Arizona; name of a city in Utah; name of places in Arkansas and Indonesia)

Word derivation for "cow" :
Basque = behi, Finnish = lehmä
Miresua = lehi

My previous Miresua word for cow was behmä. This change is so the word doesn't end in -Ä. It also simplifies the word.

This is merely a word in my conlang language, constructed as a combination of the Basque and Finnish words. It's not, in any way, intended to be a comment about or a reference to anyone or anything named Lehi.

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