What is the exact definition of the in-law terms?
Note that Latin terms do not necessarily align with English terms. For example, Latin patruus, and avunculus are both English "uncle" (on the father's and mother's side respectively).
For each, it is not clear if the Ego (the sociological term for the person to whom the relative is related) can be male or female, and whether marriage ties (the "in-law" link) extends through only one or also two marriages.
For example, it is not clear if glos can be:
- A male or female Ego's brother's wife
- A male Ego's wife's sister
- A male Ego's wife's brother's wife (brother-in-law's wife?)
- A male or female Ego's sibling's spouse's sister. (This is a bit complicated, but "sister-in-law" is used this way in English.)
Can you clarify these terms?
- gener, a daughter's husband, a son-in-law.
- glos, a husband's sister, sister-in-law.
- levir, husband's brother, brother-in-law (Also, how does this relate to sororius and socrinus?)
- nurus, daughter-in-law
- socer, father-in-law
- socrinus, brother-in-law. (Not in Lewis; Also, how does this relate to sororius and levir?)
- socrus, mother-in-law, rarely father-in-law
- sororius of or belonging to a sister, sisterly. Perhaps used for brother-in law, the husband of Ego's sister. (Also, how does this relate to socrinus and levir?)
Am I missing some terms here?
Following Sebastian Koppehel's helpful answer, the above definitions come from Lewis' dictionary (which does not clarify whether a term exactly aligns with the English X-in-law terms).
