Word Wednesday: "Sibling"

Good evening! Today’s vocabulary tip is fast. The word is sibling. Basically, siblings means “brothers and sisters.” I chose this word for today since my brother Paul is visiting us here in Costa Rica.
My brother Paul in Sarchi earlier today. I have two siblings, and Paul is the youngest of the three of us. Our sister Diana is the middle sibling.
For example, I have two siblings: one sister and one brother. In Spanish, I could say “Tengo dos hermanos,” but that doesn’t work in English, since “brother” only refers to males, and “sister” only refers to females. That’s why we say the word “siblings.”
If you want a more detailed explanation, including words for your mother and father, then check out this post that I wrote a while ago.
Thanks for reading, and have a great night!
