Why is "Your mom's sister" wrong? It only accepts "Your mother's sister".
Reporting it two years later.
i met with the same error!
Both are correct
This is really weird cuz I've only ever heard mom's sister pronounced as मासी (maasee).
Correct word is मौसी but many people use मासी instead, just like चाचू/मामू instead of चाचा/मामा।
Is there a reason we don't use 'hoti' here? I thought it was used for general truths involving the verb 'to be'.
Difference between mausi & mami
मौसी - Mother's sister
मामी - Mother's brother's wife
so far there are 3 words for aunt!!
It depends on how the aunt is related to you.
मौसी - mother's sister
बुआ - father's sister (some people use फूफी instead)
मामी - mother's brother's wife
ताई - father's elder brother's wife
चाची - father's younger brother's wife
What about ख़ाला?
ख़ाला is used in Urdu and मौसी in Hindi. They both mean the same.
I translated correctly and was marked wrong
Whwt nonsense. Mum and mom and mother are the same!
And mama and mummy. Where does it all end? Mother is the "proper" word.
Both "mother's/mom's" should be acceptable. They're both proper English.
