soft is bimeä (revisited)

bimeä = soft (adjective) (Some things Google found for "bimea": an unusual term; Bimea is a UK P2P food import / export company; BiMEA is a German retinal science research project; BIMEA is Binh Duong Mechanical Electrical Association of Vietnam; Bimea is a very rare first name)

Word derivation for "soft":
Basque = bigun, Finnish = pehmeä
Miresua = bimeä

My previous Miresua conlang word for soft was pebun.

The word soft appears once in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This quote refers to Alice's cat Dinah.
Alice went on, half to herself, as she swam lazily about in the pool, "and she sits purring so nicely by the fire, licking her paws and washing her face -- and she is such a nice soft thing..."
