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.
P.S. Please forgive the previous message. I have no idea what I did!!
