I reported "Annem ve amcam kardeştir." as correct the first time I did this sentence, but I realize my mistake. :)

Dayı: mother's brother

Teyze: mother's sister

Amca: father's brother

Hala: father's sister

If you've memorized these four words and still mix them up, one way to remember them could be that in Turkish, father is "baba"; it has 2 a's. So do "amca" and "hala".
