She is my kin.
She is my sib.
Can the words kin and sib mean exactly the same in these sentences?
Actually it's not sib that is derived from sibling. It's the other way around. I know sib can mean sibling simply (at least that's what the dictionary says). And I'm not asking about this meaning.Hi, there
I think that thw word kin comes from the exrpression next of kin = relative
word sib from sibling =brothers or sisters
So according to the meaning you should decide which one is what.:roll:
That's a very strange definition. I've never seen it used that way.
Likewise - very odd;-)That's a very strange definition. I've never seen it used that way.
