A useful word

A nibling is a term used in anthropological writing to denote a niece or nephew. (Formed from the beginning 'n' and the word sibling).

Instead of going into great detail, I can now say that I have four niblings. An additional benefit is that it sounds so delightful, particularly when you go down another generation. Great-niblings!
