If you say that here, it will be a big blunder. If you say mausa loves chachi, It would be like, your mother's sister's husband loves your father's brother's wife and that would be totally wrong. Let me tell you the meaning of all types of words in hindi used as aunts and uncles. 1. चाचा - Father's elder brother 2. चाची - Father's elder brother's wife 3. काका - Father's younger brother 4. काकी - Father's younger brother's wife 5. फूफी/ बुआ - Father's sister (elder/younger) 6. फूफा - Father's sister's (elder/younger) husband 7. मामा - Mother's brother (elder/younger) 8. मामी - Mother's brother's (elder/younger) wife 9. मौसी - Mother's sister (elder/younger) 10. मौसा - Mother's sister's (elder/younger) husband
It should be the hai with the dot (हैं) in उसकी माँ के भाई उसके मामा हैं.
There is nothing grammatically wrong with उसकी माँ का भाई उसका मामा है except that it may be rude/disrespectful, especially if the person in question is older than you.
Note: मौसा doesn't really fit in the sentence because your मौसा is your mother's sister's husband, not mother's brother - उसकी माँ के जीजा उसके मौसा हैं
Thank you so much! I copied the first sentence (the one with the missing dot) from an earlier lesson and it puzzled me. If I see it again I’ll report it. And yes- got confused there. In Dutch we don’t even differentiate between cousins that are one’s sibling’s children or an uncle’s children so this is a new dimension, to say the least
It can be 'Julias's uncle loves his aunt' only when the 'his' is not referring to Julia's uncle. Eg: 'Julia does not like Peter's family. But Julia's uncle loves his aunt', where the 'his' refers to someone else (Peter), not Julia's uncle.
If the 'his' is to refer to Julia's uncle, who is the subject of the sentence, you need to use the reflexive pronoun 'apni'.
'जूलिया के मामा उसकी मामी से प्यार करते हैं' should be accepted. You can report if it is not.
(मौसा-मौसी and मामा-मामी are used for aunts/uncles who are related to you differently. Your मौसी is your mother's sister and मौसा is her husband. Your मामा is your mother's brother and मामी is his wife. )
