Esperanto[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From kuzo (cousin) +‎ -iĉo (male).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

kuziĉo (accusative singular kuziĉon, plural kuziĉoj, accusative plural kuziĉojn)

  1. (rare, neologism, nonstandard) male cousin
    Mi ludis kun mia kuziĉo.
    I played with my male cousin.

Usage notes[edit]

  • This form is often considered redundant, because kuzo traditionally means “male cousin” even without the addition of the masculine ending -iĉo, although it is losing this maleness from the influence of gender-neutral usage by English-speaking Esperantists.

Synonyms[edit]

Coordinate terms[edit]

  • kuzino ((female) cousin)
