The words man and woman can also be expressed as manyen and femyen. Technically, manyen refers to any male (whether boy or man) and femyen refers to any female (whether girl, lady or woman). However, since we would typically use nini for an underage human, manyen and femyen may be used not only when one is not sure of the person's age, but when we're referring to an adult.
Den femyen is mediciyen.
