once removed (not comparable)

  1. One generation apart.
    Phil and Andre are first cousins once removed.

Usage notes[edit]

If two cousins are from different generations to the common ancestor, the term removed indicates how many generations apart they are.

For example, if Phil and Marie are first cousins (have a common grandparent), and Marie has a son Andre, Phil and Andre are first cousins once removed.
