mirror is ispeli (revisited)

ispeli = mirror (noun) (Some things Google found for "ispeli": an unusual to rare term; similar pan'ispeli is an ancient Sardinian acorn bread which includes clay; Ispeli Enterprse of Mexico provides ground transportation for private companies and tourism; user names; appears to mean something in Serbo-Croatian)

Word derivation for "mirror" :
Basque = ispilu, Finnish = peili
Miresua = ispeli

My previous word for mirror was isile. I wanted to use the common letter P in the new word.

The word mirror doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-Glass, although looking-glass is synonym of mirror.
