sample


Explanation:
temtemunha can mean 'demonstrative' or 'marker' i.e. something used to show, demonstrate or as a a sample. The phrase could be translated literally as 'demonstrative sample', but the 'demonstrative' is redundant as it means the same as sample.

I would translate this as simply 'sample'
