my uncle's son is my cousin.
my uncle's daughter is also called my cousin.
my brother is my brother, not my cousin.
my brother and I share the same father, so I am my father's daughter and he, my brother, is my father's son. (My father has one wife.)
He's my own brother, not yours or anyone else's.
I understand,but in Indian collaqualism when I introduce my brother to others in front of some people,if I say that he is my brother ,they would raise a question whether he is my own or not.That is why I am asking you this word own is right or wrong.I want to add a word in between my and brother.Please help me.
