Hi Listeners! What is your favorite Family Member word? Let us know!
Hi raizy and Sharon,
Thanks for posting your questions! I'll be happy to answer them 😄
@raizy - The only words for niece and nephew are these that appear above - אחיינית and אחיין.
@Sharon - Well, it makes perfect sense, no? the cousin is the "son of the uncle" after all... 😅 All other possible options are also valid - daughter of the uncle (בת דוד), daughter of the aunt (בת דודה) and son of the aunt (בן דודה).
Happy to help! keep up the good work and enjoy learning Hebrew!

Hello, I have listened to all of the vocabulary words on the list, repeated the native speakers and enjoyed the exercise. So far, I do not have a favorite word but do like to hear all of them used in context sentences. I am a beginner in learning Hebrew. Linda
Oh, my! I have much to learn! Dod means uncle. Ben means son. But put together it means cousin, of either sex? My mind is having a hard time wrapping itself around it! Much more to absorb. Love the word for family.
Great 👍 just what I was looking for
is there another hebrew word for niece and nephew
my favorite word is sister--- Akhot an ah for brother.👍
