wall (defensive) is muresi (revisited)

muresi = wall (noun) (Some things Google found for "muresi": an unusual to uncommon term; Muresi handmade craft jewelry of Japan; a rare last name; Via Caduti Muresi is a street Muro Leccese, Italy; In Estonian palju muresi means many worries; name of places in Burundi and Albania)

Word derivation for "wall": (stone wall, defensive wall)
Basque = harresi, Finnish = muuri
Miresua = muresi

My previous Miresua conlang word for wall, stone or defensive, was a murari. Changing this word to end like the Basque word.

This is the word for a stone wall or a defensive wall, such as The Great Wall of China.

The word wall doesn't appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but it can be found a handful of times in Through the Looking-Glass.
Humpty Dumpty was sitting with his legs crossed, like a Turk, on the top of a high wall -- such a narrow one that Alice quite wondered how he could keep his balance....
