comment Name for the relationship of wife’s sister’s husband
@JanusBahsJacquet Chinese is indeed on the other end of the spectrum compared to English! Just to confirm - did you mean "wife’s younger brother’s husband" or is it a term for "wife’s younger brother’s partner"?

@Mitch Thanks. That is the kind of discussion I was looking for.

Ah! Disappointing. :-) I was expecting a new word to come up. I suppose English is less specific about relationships when compared to Indian languages. Tamil, an Indian language, has different words for the relationships of father's brother and mother's brother. English uses the word "uncle" for both. The same generalization applies in this case well.
