monster is muirvö

muirvö = monster (noun) (Some things Google found for "muirvo": a rare term; French references to movie The Ghost and Mrs. Muir followed by VO which stands for Version Originale aka the language in which the movie was created; videos by people with the last name Muir followed by VO which may also stand for Voice Over; bad OCR of old text documents)

Word derivation for "monster" :
Basque = munstro, Finnish = hirviö
Miresua = muirvö

This is a brand new word.

I'm returning to the Miresua conlang after a break of sixteen months, more than a year away. Time will tell how often I'll be publishing new posts, but I intend to slowly resume creating (and modifying) words.

The word monster doesn't appear in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but it can be found eight times, several times as a plural, in Through the Looking-Glass.
The Lion looked at Alice wearily. "Are you animal -- vegetable -- or mineral?" he said, yawning at every other word.

"It's a fabulous monster!" the Unicorn cried out, before Alice could reply.

Mad Hatter (to Alice): You used to be much more… “muchier.” You’ve lost your muchness.
(from Tim Burton’s 2010 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ movie)
