"He is my uncle and she is my aunt."

Translation:Han er min onkel og hun er min tante.

Are "onkel" and "tante" used much or is it usually morbror, farbror, moster, faster?


Today in my uni Danish class I learned that morbror, farbror, moster, faster are only for blood related aunts and uncles. Onkel and tante are only used for non-blood relatives.


ah that's helpful thank you!

    Any time you say morbror, farbror, moster or faster, you can also say onkel/tante.

    Onkel/tante is also used for the spouses of your morbror, farbror, moster and faster.


    I see, thank you!
