    Post undaughterly

    Please, dear teachers and friends...

    Would it be OK to define 'undaughterly' as inappropriate for a daughter to do something?

    I couldn't find such word (daughterly) on dictionaries!

    Thank you!

    relating to or characteristic of or befitting an offspring; "filial respect".

    After all theses days, English still surprises me!

    Mine says:

    DERIVATIVES
    daughterhood |-ˌhoŏd| |ˈdɔdərˈhʊd| |ˈdɑdərˈhʊd| noun
    daughterly |ˈdɔdərli| |ˈdɑdərli| adjective


    Since 'un-' is one of the most common ways whereby English words are changed into their opposite meaning, both won't be listed.
