"I have several aunts."
Translation:Jag har flera fastrar.
Is there a way to say "aunts" that includes both the maternal and paternal sides at once?
tant works but is extremely old-fashioned, using it would make you sound like you're intentionally going for a 1950s black-and-white movie vibe. :)
What if you don't know if the relative is on the father's side or on the mother's side? Then how do you refer to that relation?
Aunt is either ”faster” (if it’s your father’s sister), or ”moster” (if it’s your mother’s sister), the plural forms are fastrar and mostrar.
I had to translate "I have several aunts." and used "tänter" since the sentence does not give away if it's your fathers or mothers or both. I think that should be added, also used the report button.
Firstly, tänter is not a Swedish word, the plural of tant is just tanter. Secondly, tant does not mean aunt, it just means "old lady".
Fastrar = far-syster= father-sister.
Far and mor are the formal terms for pappa and mamma.
