orange (color) is aransi (revisited)
Word derivation for "orange (color)" :
Basque = laranja, Finnish = oranssi
Miresua = aransi
My previous word for orange (color) was laransi. I dropped the initial L mainly for aesthetic reasons. This change makes the word for the color orange look even less like the word for orange, the fruit, which is laperni.
The word orange (color) doesn't appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-glass. Although ORANGE MARMALADE is mentioned once in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
