There oughta be a word...

...for nieces and nephews collectively. Mothers and fathers = parents. Brothers and sisters = siblings. Grandma and Grandpa = grandparents. Come to think of it, aunts and uncles need a word, too.

Other languages probably have such words, but I took Latin in high school and it doesn't get me too far now that I've taken my fair share of SATs.
