once removed (not comparable)

  1. One generation apart.
    Phil and Andre are first cousins once removed.

Usage notesEdit

If two cousins are from different generations to the common ancestor, the term removed indicates how many generations apart they are.

For example, if Phil and Marie are first cousins (have a common grandparent), and Marie has a son Andre, Phil and Andre are first cousins once removed.
