Using vortaro.net, I found this definition for "prepucio" : "Haŭta refaldo, mufe ĉirkaŭanta la penisan glanon". I understood the meaning, but I don't know what "mufe" is. Vortaro.net doesn't have it, and I didn't find something satisfying on the Internet.

So, I'm asking you: What does "mufe" mean?

The advantage of vortaro.net is that as soon as you type something in the search field, it gives you word suggestions. If you begin to type muf immediately a list of words unfolds: mufi, mufo, mufli, etc. The final e in mufe clearly indicates the word is an adverb (mufi is a verb and mufo a noun). The important thing is to distinguish the root of the word, in this case muf. Other online dictionaries (like ReVo) don't have real-time suggestions, so you have to search different variations of the word based on the root in order to find it: mufe, mufa, mufi, mufo. In ReVo you will only find mufo. The advantage of ReVo is that it gives translations in other languages. In this case mufo is muff, a warm tubular covering for the hands. Accordingly, mufe ĉirkaŭanta is surrounding like a muff.

  • Ooh. I didn't think about looking for muf. I copy-paste mufe. ^^. Thanks!

"Mufo" is a muff (like a glove you stick yours hands in from both sides). So "mufe" would just be "like a muff".
