    Lightbulb What is the meaning of "mennonough" ?

    Hey guys, I'm translating an episode of a TV show called "scandal" and there, a woman was talking about "Kurkistan" and mentioned that "if I lived there, I would have been married off to feed the mennonough to keep growing opiumin the fields."

    I don't get the meaning of "mennonough". I checked my dictionaries and also Googled it but it was waste of time.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Are you sure it isn't "... I would have been married off to feed the men enough to keep growing opium ..."?

    Edit: I just found this on a TV review website: "In fact Millie's whole speech about how if they had been born in rural Kurdistan they would have been married at 12 and growing opium in the fields ..."

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you so very much. What you said was a great hint, because I listened again and again - as she talks fast- and noticed that it is "men enough" although in the English subtitle it is "mennonough".

    Appreciate it.
