    How can I say that one is oldest/youngest of (let's say) seven siblings?

    "Hän on kuusi sisarusparvien vanhin/nuorin" (?)

    Is there an expression which corresponds to middle child? (for example, second of three siblings, fourth of seven siblings)

    "Hän on kuusi sisarusparvien keskinäinen" (?)

    Hei EVOO,

    sisarusparven nuorin means "the youngest of a group of siblings". If you want to specify that there are seven siblings, you could say seitsemän sisaruksen parven nuorin, but I think it's more common to say nuorin seitsemästä sisaruksesta.

    Hän on keskimmäinen seitsemästä sisaruksesta.
