Are you Materteral?

I was thinking this morning how 'avuncular' is one of my favourite words-- I like Nigel Farage because he is so avuncular-- and it seemed to me a shame that there is no equivalent word to apply to ladies who are 'auntly'. (Whatever that is. But what is uncle-like, for that matter? You know it when you see it, and the same thing with auntiness)

But there is! At least, somebody has proposed one. Marterteral

I'm all for it.
