Character background[ edit ] During various episodes, Jareau has described growing up in a small town near PittsburghPennsylvania.
On the other hand, English makes some distinctions that other languages do not.
Even native English speakers can be confused by some of our relationship terms. After we had worked that out see Example 2he suggested others might be interested. What follows is an expanded and more general form of our discussion.
In English, three sets of terms seem to cause the most difficulty: Just to make things messy, each of these terms can correctly be used for several different relationships. This would include the relationships of half brother and half sister as well as full brother and sister.
Please have a look at the following table. H and W a husband and wife are the common ancestors of this family. B1 and C1 are the grandchildren grandsons and gradddaughters of H and W, and H and W are therefore the grandparents grandfather and grandmother of B1 and C1.
Aunt, Uncle, Niece, Nephew There are standard words for collateral relationships, where neither person is directly descended from the other. B0 and C0 are brother and sister, or more generically siblings. Going down one generation, on one side only, we have four common relationships: C1 is the niece or nephew of B0; most people would say C1 is also the niece or nephew of Z0.
More generally, B1 and C1, and all their descendants, are cousins to each other. A separate section below details all the words used to describe cousin relationships. Godparents Many children have godparents chosen for them by their parents, for example in Christian denominations at the time of baptism.
The godparents, in turn, may speak of their godson or goddaughter, and collectively godsons and goddaughters would be godchildren. Perhaps because I grew up with this, it has always seemed charming to me: The one that concerns us here is great adj.
Being one generation removed from the relative specified. Often used in combination: Apply this definition to B2 and C2. H and W in turn are the great-grandparents great-grandfather and great-grandmother of B2 and C2.
If we drew the family tree another generation down, B3 and C3 would be the great-great-grandchildren of H and W, and so on. Since B0 and Z0 are the aunt and uncle of C1, they are the great-aunt and great-uncle of C2. That makes C2 their great-niece or great-nephew.
Unfortunately, language is not logical: Instead, the terminology is cousins so many times removedas explained below.Young celebrities before they were famous. From first auditions, to high school photos.
And from ethnicity to a gay or straight factcheck.
Terms Involving “In-law” There are several of these, but most give little difficulty to native speakers. Any relationship term ending with -in-law indicates that the relationship is by marriage and not by blood; in other words, one of us is a blood relative of the other’s spouse.
If I want to refer collectively to the blood relatives of my spouse, I can call them “my in-laws". The formalism of "Aunt Jennifer's Tigers" hides the more disturbing aspects of the poem and subordinates the theme of Aunt Jennifer's "ordeals" in marriage to the more "poetic" theme of the transcendence of art.
The first verse of the poem describes the fearless tigers Aunt Jennifer . An Arranged Marriage is, quite simply, the idea that someone is going to choose your spouse for you. The way an Arranged Marriage is treated by the plot will be dependent on place and time.
