Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A nephew is a son of one's sibling, sibling-in-law, or half-sibling, and a niece is a daughter of one's sibling, sibling-in-law, or half-sibling. Sons and daughters of siblings-in-law are also informally referred to as nephews and nieces respectively, even though there is no blood relation. The word nephew is derived from the French word neveu.In archaic terminology, a maternal nephew is called a sister-son, emphasizing the importance as a person's nearest male relative should he have no brothers or sons of his own. The term is used to describe some knights who are nephews to King Arthur and is imitated by J. R. R. Tolkien, especially in lists of Kings of Rohan or dwarves where the sister-son is also heir. Sister-daughter is a less common parallel term for niece.show more
