But in the singular? Would you ever say "She is my sibling"? For what
it's worth, I usually don't even use sibling in the plural. I'd usually
say something like, for example, "Do you have any brothers or sisters?"
rather than "Do you have any siblings". I might use "siblings" in a
specific case like that, "He has three siblings"
