There is no specific word for "brother-in-law" and "sister-in-law." On should just describe the relationship:
  • loDnI' loDnal and be'nI' loDnal for "brother-in-law"
  • loDnI' be'nal and be'nI' be'nal for "sister-in-law"

You could even say things like be'nal loDnI' be'nal "wife's brother's wife", but it is preferred to call all these people 'e'nalpu' "people who married into the family."
