This article (aunt) needs attention because:
need to disambiguate
It has been added to this category for attention. Thank you for your patience.

In Turkish there are separate words for "sister of mother" (teyze), "sister of father" (hala), "wife of uncle" (yenge). In English all these concepts are expressed with one word, aunt. So aunt is an ambiguous translation of these three Turkish words. I propose to split the definition of "aunt" in the following manner:

  • DM1: Sister of mother.
Eng: aunt
Tur: teyze
  • DM2: Sister of father.
Eng: aunt
Tur: hala
  • DM3: Wife of uncle.
Eng: aunt
Tur: yenge
