ᴺS. [G.] ^bethres n. “sister in law, *kinswoman by marriage” (Category: Sister-in-Law)
|ress||“female cousin, relative”|
The word G. bedhres “sister in law” appeared in the Gnomish Lexicon of the 1910s as a combination of the early root ᴱ√Beđ “wed” and G. ress “female relative” (GL/22); like its male counterpart G. bedhres, it seems to more generally mean “*kinswoman by marriage”. It had a variant G. gadres where the initial element was G. gad “joint, link” (GL/36).
