Appendix v: Family Units and Organisation

  1. Immediate Family: Frīnðʀ
    1. Great-grandparents: Fūrævʀ
      There is no distinction between mother’s/father’s maternal and paternal grandparents; e.g. father’s father’s father and father’s mother’s father are both fūravf. The prefix “great-” is “fūr,” and can be repeated indefinitely in the same manner. Familial generations use the same prefixes as time-related words, such as fūr-, naɧ-, and naɧᵫvʀ-, though gestʀ- is not used for family members, as the adjective implies that they are dead.
      1. Mother’s Great-grandmother: Fūrana
      2. Mother’s Great-grandfather: Fūran
      3. Father’s Great-grandmother: Fūrama
      4. Father’s Great-grandfather: Fūravf
    2. Grandparents: Ævʀ
      It is perhaps worth noting here that the collective term for grandparents is ævʀ, though the maternal grandparents are distinctly known as ænʀ.
