Did you mean "paternal" by cahnce? That might be why its not marking it as correct.

The devs really need to be consistent in when they are requiring the side of family specifier in their answer

Adá'í is what men call their uncle, not the women.

Yá’át’ééh ShaniahChe! I would like to understand it better: can you explain or post a link with an explanation? Not only a maternal uncle has a different word from paternal uncle, but if the nephew is a boy or a girl, the word also change? I really got confused... Thank you for your help...
