Paper, in my words

paperpapeor : paper

The Fennas word for paper is papeor. Papeor can be a misspelling of paper.

The Welsh word for paper is papur, the Irish word for paper is páipéar, and the Breton word for paper seems to be paper.

Admittedly my word doesn't look that foreign, but neither do the Welsh, Irish and Breton words. All the words for paper are nearly paper.
