    cousin 在英文裡包括了堂兄弟姊妹.

    除非人家要你說明,否則一個字cousin就帶過去了. 下列是幾個較簡易的分辨:

    堂哥/弟: He is my older/younger cousin from my father's side.

    堂姊/妹: She is my older/younger cousin from my father's side.

    表兄弟姊妹 就換成from my mother's side.

    cousin 還分 first cousin, second cousin, third cousin 等等. 那就更複雜了, 這些都跟世不是有相同的祖父母有關.

    英文不如中文注重種稱謂,亦無太多稱謂詞。

    英文中喜歡直呼名字,故如果您的大伯父叫Tom,即直接稱呼為“uncle Tom”。

    不過這種用法通常只對長輩,平輩間喜歡直呼名字,如果您的堂姊叫Amy,直接稱呼為“Amy”即可。但若擔心文章中別人不知道Amy與您的關係,可使用同位語在Amy首次出場時做補述說明,即“Amy, my cousin, is a nurse.”。

    補充:

    「伯父、叔父、姑父、姨丈、舅父…等」皆以“uncle”稱呼;而「伯母、嬸母、姑母、姨母、舅母」則以“aunt”稱呼。

    Cousin為親戚的廣稱,除非對方有追問才會加以解釋"堂姊" "堂哥" "表妹" '表弟""堂姊"→ Amy is my cousin, she is older than me. She is a member of my father’s family. "堂哥" → Bob is my cousin, he is older than me. He is a member of my father’s family."表妹" → Judy is my cousin, she is younger than me. She is a member of my mother’s family.'表弟"→ Paul is my cousin, he is younger than me. He is a member of my mother’s family.

    就很簡單阿!!

    你可以先講名子

    例: Lili (my cousin)

    ...................

    { ........ }指後續發展

    Lili (my cousin) = 麗麗(我的表姊or堂姊)

    如果你想單獨叫的話!!

    可能也不能只接較 cousin 八!!

    上面是指文法的問題!!
