matēnnīkōn

We’re on sentence 14 of the LCC4 relay text:

temme ien pa ē matēnnīkōnēri ē matēnnīkōnēle ī le ancē ja sere jāo;

So, a matÄ“nnÄ«kōn is someone who is/was engaged in the jatÄ“nnÄ«ke ceremony with someone. Here this translates as “spouse” or “husband” or “wife”. More on this sentence tomorrow.
