Vocabulary Family relations

5 November 2013
door Regina Coeli

If Spanish surnames seem complicated, the exact opposite is true for the Spanish vocabulary for members of the family. There are not as many options as in English because there are very few differences between the masculine and feminine forms.
Here they all are:

 padre father
 madre mother
 hijo/hija son / daughter
 hermano / hermana  brother / sister
 tío/tía  uncle / aunt
 sobrino / sobrina   cousin
 primo / prima nephew / niece
 abuelo / abuela grandfather / grandmother
 nieto / nieta grandson / granddaughter
 suegro / suegra father-in-law / mother-in-law
 yerno son-in-law
 nuera daughter-in-law
 cuñado / cuñada brother-in-law / sister-in-law
