    Nothing. It's a nonsensical syllable used in Byzantine Orthodox Ecclesiastical music in order to prolong the melody and fill the gaps during the Service. The syllables "terirem", "tenena", "terute" are called «κρατήματα» (kra'timata, plural neuter nominative of the noun «κράτημα» ('kratima)-->lit. grip, handhold).
