'Iv? is also a perfectly valid question.

Seriously, the kinship terms are the ones that needed the most practise for me, well after level 5. They (like finger and toe terms) make more sense with some kind of diagram (albeit slightly simplified):

Nice summary family tree, thank you, kahless! I'm going to save and study this. I can foresee the kinship terms being confusing for some time to come, what with all the -nals and -nIs and loDs and be's in various combinations. I can hardly wait for the fingers and toes ... !

Thanks, glad it's helpful. For the fingers I found a mnemonic to be a useful aid. Made up a word (Sen)-SIq-qay-qew-qan, Word for using the (thumb)-then fingers in order.
