Hi! Thank you. This is very helpful. Is there a way to pluralize such as aunts, uncles cousins and in-laws? Where may I find words and pronunciations for cousin(s) and in-law(s)? Have a great day.

Hi страйкбол призрак,


Thank you for posting.


The word for "nephew" is in the list. Please click on [show all 32] below the entry for "niece" to display all vocabulary entries.


Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any questions.


@Alan,


Thank you for your message.


Please check out how to say/write "friend" in Russian in our Russian Dictionary:

https://www.russianpod101.com/russian-dictionary/


As [friend] is not a word referring to family members, it won't be shown in this current list.


Thank you!


Sincerely,

Cristiane
