      the worthless word for the day is: enatic

      [L. enatus] also enate
      related on the mother's side <enatic clans>

      bonus word:
      agnatic (also agnate) - related on the father's side
      [L. agnatus]

      "I regard it as now established that the elementary
      components of patrification and matrification, and
      hence of agnatic, enatic, and cognatic modes of
      reckoning kinship are, like genes in the individual
      organism, invariably present in all familial systems."
      - Meyer Fortes, Kinship and the Social Order (2005)
