  5. "Yes, I am your cousin."

"Yes, I am your cousin."

Translation:Ano, jsem tvá sestřenice.

September 30, 2018



How could we tell that they are talking about a female cousin? In English there is no formal distiction between male and female cousins, although sometimes (because of French influence) cousine is used for a female cousin.


From the English sentence, you can't tell, and both sestřenice and bratranec are accepted.
