please, correct me if im wrong...

A lot of the anagrams or whatever they're called, can be semi confusing. I know mil fil dil and bil are mother father daughter and brother in law, but is sil son or sister inlaw? And what's dd,ds, oh, and bump refer to? Thanks so much for answering

  • Yes, they can be very confusing. There is a long list of terms and abbreviations in the Newcomber's Club.

  • SIL - sister-in-law (though I guess it could be son-in-law - but I would imagine most women on here aren't old enough to have a son-in-law!)

    DD - darling daughter
    DS - darling son
    SO - significant other

    OH - no idea!

    If you "bump" a question, it moves back up to the top of the list so more people can see it

  • I guess SIL could be either sister in law or son in law. But DD DS is dear daughter & dear son. I'm not sure about OH

  • sil is usually reffering to sister in law but im sure could be used for son...dd is dearest or dear daughter...ds same for son..oh i dont know...bump is to bump a post to give it attention if you like the question or dont know the answer and want to bump it up so other people will look at it.
