sheep is aras (revisited)

aras = sheep (noun) (Some things Google found for "aras": a very common term; Aras Corp sells product development software; a river on the international boundary between Armenia and Azerbaijan on the north and Turkey and Iran on the south; a unusual to uncommon last name; an unusual masculine first name; ARAS is an acronym for Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism; ARAS is a Lithuanian police anti-terrorist special operations unit; in Greek mythology Aras was an autochthon and the first king of Phliasia; ARAS Foundation where ARAS is an acronym for Acceptance, Respect, Affection, Support; ARAS dog rescue and rehoming centre in the UK; means macaws in French; means deer in Sindarin; name of places in Spain and Iran; similar Årås is the name of a place in Norway)

Word derivation for "sheep" :
Basque = ardi, Finnish = lammas
Miresua = aras

My previous Miresua word for sheep was alda. I'm redoing it so that the word doesn't end in -A. Neither the Basque word or the Finnish word ends in -A.

The word sheep occurs once in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
So she sat on, with closed eyes, and half believed herself in Wonderland, though she knew she had but to open them again, and all would change to dull reality -- the grass would be only rustling in the wind, and the pool rippling to the waving of the reeds -- the rattling teacups would change to tinkling sheep-bells...
This Miresua word has been changed. The word for sheep is now ladis.
