AdjectiveEdit

verwandt (comparative verwandter, superlative am verwandtesten)

    Engländer und Deutsche sind eng miteinander verwandte Völker.
    English and Germans are closely related peoples.
    Hyponyms: anverwandt, blutsverwandt, stammverwandt, wurzelverwandt
  2. related (standing in relation or connection)

Usage notesEdit

  • In a narrower sense verwandt includes relatives by blood and adoption, their spouses and one’s own spouse—but not other “in-laws”. The latter are then specified with the adjective verschwägert (related by marriage).
  • An even narrower sense is blutsverwandt (related by blood).
