Here is the list of words:

English O'zbekcha
Family Oila
father ota
mother ona
sister* opa
brother** aka
daughter qiz
son o'g'il
husband er
grandfather bobo
grandmother buvi
relatives qarindoshlar
uncle amaki/tog'a
aunt amma/xola
cousin*** ammavachcha

*sister - opa for the big sister, singil for the younger sister [:singil: pronounce as written].
**brother - aka for the bigger brother, uka for the younger brother [:uka: pronounce as written]
***cousin - amma-vachcha, vachcha can be added in different cases when you use uncle - amaki, you can call your uncle's child as amakivachcha, you get the idea!

Now the case of uncle - amaki is used for father's brothers, tog'a is used for mother's brothers. In the case of  aunt - amma is used for father's sisters, xola is used for mother's sisters. It might seem complicated, but practice makes it better!

Did I miss something? Please let me know, your favorite parts and what would you want to learn for the next lesson, in the comments.




Ko'rishguncha! (see you)

  1. Hello
    Hope you're well.
    My step mother is from Uzbekistan and we were told to call her father baba and her mother bujan. What does Bujan mean? I don't see it anywhere online. I don't think it's her name. Thanks! Great post!

    1. Hello Hayat,

      I suppose she meant (baba/bobo/buva) which all means grandfather. (buvi/buvijon/bibi) all means grandmother. Depending on locality this changes as well. Look for "buvijon" probably you will find something relevant online.
