hat is kaptu (revisited)

kaptu = hat (noun) (Some things Google found for "kaptu": an uncommon term; imperative of the Esperanto verb to catch, to capture; user names; a rare last name; Kaptu-bong is a low peak in North Korea; similar kaput means broken, no longer working; similar kaptur means hood (headwear) in Polish; similar Kaptur is the name of a place in Poland)

Word derivation for "hat":
Basque = kapela, Finnish = hattu
Miresua = kaptu

My previous Miresua conlang word for hat was hapa. I'm changing this word so it no longer ends in -A, and also so that it isn't quite as short.

Apologies for my few postings lately.

I found only one occurrence of the word hat in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, although there are many of Hatter.
"Take off your hat," the King said to the Hatter.

"It isn't mine," said the Hatter.
