This article (brother) needs attention because:
A defined meaning for it may be incorrect.
It has been added to this category for attention. Thank you for your patience.

The second DM: "at least one parent in common" seems dubious - this allows also the case of both parents in common, but can they still be half-brothers then? \Mike 13:21, 20 July 2006 (CEST)

I think 'at least' should be struck in the defined meaning. The current is wrong. The same is true for WiktionaryZ:sister. Siebrand 13:28, 20 July 2006 (CEST)
Yes, and it's not a brother, it's a half-brother. —Celestianpower Háblame 14:17, 20 July 2006 (CEST)
In Dutch at least, one can refer to a half-brother also as a brother, although the most precise term would be half-brother. That does make it a synonym, doesn't it? Siebrand 14:36, 20 July 2006 (CEST)
Changed the original defined meaning to "A male person who has only one parent in common with another person." from "A male person who has at least one parent in common with another person." As far as I know it is only possible to have 2 biological parents. Having the same two biological parents means being full brothers or sisters, having only one of two equal biological parents, means being half-brothers of half-sisters.

Swedish DM is corrected. How about Dutch? \Mike 14:43, 20 July 2006 (CEST)
And what about WiktionaryZ:half-sister? —Celestianpower Háblame 15:40, 20 July 2006 (CEST)
I'll check all (half-)brother/sister cases and fix English and Dutch. Siebrand 16:12, 20 July 2006 (CEST)
