    An "uncle" is male and an "aunt" is female.

    An uncle could be either my father's brother or my mother's brother.

    Your aunt's husband is also called your uncle.
    Your uncle's wife is also called your aunt.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
