Do you have any SIBLINGS? – Not Only Grammar

Do you have any brothers or sisters? = 7 words
Do you have any SIBLINGS? = 5 words

There you have it, one good reason to use the word SIBLING. However, if you are asked the question, it is better to answer with brothers and sisters. When I tell you that I have one SIBLING, your next question is going to be, “Brother or sister?” Hence it makes sense for me to reply directly with, “I have a sister” or “One sister”.

Also note that we usually use the plural form – SIBLINGS – in the question.

Over to you …

So who of you out there has the most SIBLINGS? What’s the age difference between the youngest and the oldest? Can you beat the man in the story below?

More for you …
