Can we please, use "вуйко" as an alternative tov"дядько" for "uncle"? "Дядько" sounds disrespectful. (Like you're talking about some old, smelly guy off the street!) I will never use"дядько" for that reason alone. Especially when you respect them.

    «Вуйко» 'maternal uncle' and «стрий» 'paternal uncle' are dialectal and not used in literary Ukrainian. The word used in literary Ukrainian is «дядько» 'uncle'. This course teaches literary Ukrainian.
