What is the meaning of timamollo and candle wife?
Are they even a word?

That is what you need to figure out from the context.
When you are not clear, take it as nouns (and in fact, that is the case here).


Please press kudos, if my efforts to explain you have helped at least in some way....

When a timamollo or candle wife, a Pedi chief's bride, arrives at the royal house, all the fires in the village are doused and re-lit directly from her candle.

A. When a timamollo or candle wife, a Pedi chief's bride, arrives at the royal house, all the fires in the village are doused and re-lit directly from her candle. Correct
B. When the bride of a Pedi chief, a timamollo or candle wife, arrives at the royal house, all the fires in the village are doused and re-lit directly from her candle. Changes noun modifier - a Pedi chief's bride to a list - the bride of a Pedi chief, a timamollo or candle wife

A. When a timamollo or candle wife, a Pedi chief's bride, arrives at the royal house, all the fires in the village are doused and re-lit directly from her candle. Correct
B. When the bride of a Pedi chief, a timamollo or candle wife, arrives at the royal house, all the fires in the village are doused and re-lit directly from her candle. We normally have a term and the noun modifier will describe the term set of in commas. This order is reversed here.
C. When a timamollo, a Pedi chief's candle wife, arrives at the royal house, all the fires in the village are doused and re-lit directly from her candle. So Pedi chief has a lot of other wives and timamollo is the candle wife?
D. When a timamollo or candle wife arrives at the royal house, all the fires in the village are doused and re-lit directly from the Pedi chief's bride. Horrible change in meaning. This tells us that the Pedi chief's bride and tinamollo or candle wife are 2 separate people.
E. When a timamollo or a Pedi chief's candle wife, arrives at the royal house, all the fires in the village are doused and re-lit directly from her candle. So Pedi chief has a lot of other wives and timamollo is the candle wife?


Your explanation that implicates B as a wrong answer is very valid.

Option A, the correct option, is similar to saying "When Nnamdi, a handsome boy, steps into the room, everyone stares". As per your explanation, which is correct, "Nnamdi is the term and "a handsome boy" modifies it.

But option B turns it around and says instead "When a handsome boy, Nnamdi, steps into the room, everyone stares". This is ambiguous and unclear.

I am learning! :grin:

B is the only correct choice as the choice A doesn't clearly mention if timamollo or candle wife are two different people or just one! Also, In choice A, a Pedi chief's bride seems to modify only the noun "candle wife" which is not correct.

C and E lead to an awkward meaning because of "Pedi chief's candle wife".
In D, "Pedi chief's bride" comes very late in the sentence to make the reference.
Between A and B, A has a more direct correct construction in "...candle wide, Pedi chief's bride".
Hence, A.
