blue is rima (redone)

rima = blue (Lhaesine pronunciation = RIH-muh) (some things Google found for "rima": a very common term; a feminine first name that can be Arabic in origin; Rima a.k.a Rima the Jungle Girl is a Victorian-novel heroine adapted for comic books; Rima Mashiro is a female supporting character in anime and manga series Shugo Chara; a crack or fissure on the moon; RIMA Manufacturing Company; a last name; means "rhyme" in Croatian, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish; means "five" in Maori; name of cities in China, Italy, Burkina Faso, Honduras, and United Arab Emirates)

I'm redoing this conlang word again. My previous Lhaesine word for "blue" was "sris", which was a good word but somehow not quite right.

By the way, my word for "blue" in Miresua, my Basque-Finnish inspired conlang, is "usin". In Illunse, Kate's constructed language, "blue" is "suthe".
