בן דוד

HebrewEdit

NounEdit

בֶּן־דּוֹד (ben-dódm (plural indefinite form בְּנֵי־דוֹד; feminine counterpart בַּת־דּוֹד)

  1. A (male) cousin.
  2. (specifically) The son of an uncle.

Usage notesEdit

  • Many speakers distinguish בֶּן־דּוֹד from בֶּן־דּוֹדָה (ben-dodá, aunt's son), depending whether the relationship is on the cousin's father's side or his mother's side; many others, however, use בֶּן־דּוֹד for both cases.
