Depending on the nature of the “matter” we also have:

ghu'       situation,  proposal (PB)
wanI'     phenomenon, event, occurrence, effect (qepHom 2016)

Often, I want to say something like "this doesn't concern this matter",
or "because of that which we discussed previously".

I know that to express "matter", we have the noun {Soj}, but it *feels*
too informal.

Of course, {Doch} doesn't sound too "formal" either, but for some reason
I can't identify, it just *feels* better.
