In Senjecas it is very easy. There is a verb "süêlïa" which means 1) t.v. be related by marriage to; 2) i.v. be related by marriage. The name of the relationship is prefixed to the loquent noun form of the verb, e.g.: amsüêlïus = mother-in-law afsüêlïus = father-in-law apamsüêlïus = paternal grandmother-in-law, etc. Charlie P.S. Please forgive the previous message. I have no idea what I did!!
