For years I've wondered what would be the appropriate word to descibe
something "pertaining to an Aunt"-- as in paternal, maternal and avuncular
etc.

Well, I finally found it on a word list today.
Materteral (or materterine) means pertaining to an aunt - originally latin
for a maternal aunt.

Forgive me Lynn. I was bored and it is related to genealogy-haha
