Definition #69802 - Preferred [edit]
definition x1 is a sibling of a direct ancestor/elder of x2 by bond/tie/relation/standard x3 (not necessarily genetic/biological nor necessarily directly ancestral); x1 is an associated member of one of x2's ancestor's generation; x1 is an (great-(great-(...)))uncle/aunt of x2.
notes Works for any nonnegative integer (including 0) number of "great-"s concatenated with any of the following: "uncle", "aunt", "nephew", "niece". Ancestor relationship may not be biological (it could be a string of adoptions, cultural/tribal leadership roles, biological parenthood, or any combination thereof); siblinghood may not be biological either. This word unifies the peripheral generalization/metaphoric sense of ".\abvele\" (understood to refer to a great-uncle or great-aunt, or the reciprocal relationship) with the meaning of "\famti\". It cannot refer to a sibling or a cousin (strict sense) of x2 in a simple family tree. See: .\abvele\, \famti\, \tunba\, \tamne\.
