Cousins - Removed
In Response To: When To Use "Great" & "Grand" ()

Can we now move to "Cousins removed?"

Is it your 2nd cousin or is it your first cousin, once removed? And how can you tell?

Again, it's a generational thing.

My sister recently corrected me about cousins, speaking of the son of our first cousin: "No, that's your 2nd cousin."

My reply was "Actually, no, he's our first cousin, once removed, and he and your child are 2nd cousins."

She looked at me as though I had spoken in an "unknown tongue."
