Anrish

Etymology

From Middle Anrish ænr, from Old Anrish ændr, ander, from Old Irish ainder ("young woman")

Pronunciation

(Anrish) IPA: /ˈai̯nur/

Noun

ænur (runic:‧ᛆᚾᚢᚱ‧)

  1. An Anrish woman, a lady

Usage notes

The Anrish do not assign gender based on biological sex, but rather the ternary role deliberately adopted by a member of society at their coming of age. Thus, the Anrish concept of ænur does not strictly refer to female sex and/or gender as does the term "woman" in other societies.
