oak is tamitz (revisited)

tamitz = oak (tree, wood) (noun) (some things Google found for "tamitz": a rare term; user names; a rare last name; a very rare first name; similar Stamitz is the last name of a family of Czech composers; similar Tamitsa is the name of a place in a Arkhangelsk Oblast, Russia)

Word derivation for "oak" :
Basque = haritz, Finnish = tammi
Miresua = tamitz

My previous Miresua conlang word for oak was mitar, which was a total alphabetic scramble. Years ago I wasn't trying to make my words look like a mix of Basque and Finnish.

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