    I'm curious...

    You know how a person who has brothers and sisters -if they just want to state them in a plural- they say "siblings"? Well, I was wondering what the word was -IF there is a word- to use when saying ones nephews and nieces plural?
    Thanks.

    very good question, honestly I don't know, and wouldn't know where to look it up, but I'd really like to find out.

    As far as I am aware, there is no such term...or, if there is, it is so far removed from common usage that no one would understand what you meant.

    However, there is hope. I understand that for Packer fans, the correct term for nieces and/or nephews as a single term is "lambs".

    Are ewe sure?


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    I tried doing a coulpe quick searches, but I didn't come up with anything. The closest I came was "kin", but that's a lot more general than what you're looking for. You might just have to say "nephews and nieces".
