Adding the suffix она to a noun forms an adjective. Занона could also be translated as “feminine”, “for woman” or “womanly”. Likewise, мардона could be translated as “men’s”, “masculine”, “manly” and “for men”. If the noun ends in a vowel the suffix is гона, as in бачагона – children’s, of children.
