- The singular of this word is used exclusively in the construct state, that is with a possessive suffix or with a following noun. The plural does not have this restriction, but it is equally the plural of oħt (“sister”) and thus means “siblings”. Meanings like “a brother” can only be paraphrased, e.g. wieħed mill-aħwa (literally “one of the siblings”). For “she has a brother”, one says għandha ħuha (literally “she has her brother”).
See the lemma.
