How should I define the type of my aunt and uncle in order to specify among my parents, whose brother or sister they are?
Is it the natural way of it to precede these nouns with the adjectives "maternal" and "paternal" or there is another fixed term for them which I have to know?
I have always said:
She is my maternal aunt or he is my paternal uncle and so on.
But for soem unknow reasons these terms strike me a bit philosophical. I wonder if you let me know about it.
