每日一字:stepbrother/stepsister

唔少人可能都記得學校教過 stepbrother/stepsister 呢兩個稱呼,話係俾所有同母異父或同父異母嘅兄弟姐妹嘅。但係你地知唔知道……其實唔係架!

首先我地要了解咩係 stepfather 同 stepmother——佢地係你其中一邊嘅父母再婚嘅配偶。如果呢位配偶本身有子女,呢啲同你無血緣關係嘅子女先係你嘅 stepbrother 同 stepsister.

但如果你嘅爸爸或媽媽同呢位再婚嘅配偶有所出,你應該叫呢啲子女 half sister 或者 half brother 先啱!而好明顯會咁樣叫,係因為佢地確係同你有一半嘅血緣關係!

如果我無記錯,中文裏面 half sister 同 half brother 係無一個特別嘅稱呼,反而 stepbrother 同 stepsister 叫繼兄弟姐妹。所以可能咁,以前有啲兼教英文嘅中文老師都會一時撈亂咗。滅氏租移希望當年學錯咗嘅同學,睇完呢一集可以學番啱啦!
