If you're a Cajun, chances are you have a tante and/or a nonc.
Tante (tȯnt) - Aunt. The French word for "aunt" is "tante" and is widely used by Cajuns.
Nonc (nȯnk) - Uncle. Short for the French phrase, "mon oncle".
Typically, we say the name of the aunt or uncle in French when we use tante or nonc. For example, my Aunt Monica is "Tante Monique".
We also use tante and nonc when referring to our great aunts and great uncles, respectively.
