road is tirde (revisited)

tirde = road (noun) (some things Google found for "tirde": an uncommon term; user names; a rare last name; Tirde's house is a vacation apartment rental in Liguria, Italy; name of a month in fantasy gaming campaign setting of Outcastia; perhaps a misspelling of tired; name of a village in Maharashtra, India)

Word derivation for "road" :
Basque = errepide, Finnish = tie
Miresua = tirde

My previous Miresua conlang word for road was peire, which was a alphabetic scramble that didn't much resemble the Basque word or the Finnish word.

The word road doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but it occurs a dozen times in Through the Looking-Glass.
"So much obliged!" added Tweedledee. "You like poetry?"

"Ye-es, pretty well -- SOME poetry," Alice said doubtfully. "Would you tell me which road leads out of the wood?"
