From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  sibling \sib"ling\ [sub + -ling.] (s[i^]b"l[i^]ng), n.
     a brother or a sister.
     Note: Siblings have at least one parent in common. Those
           related only by a common mother are uterine siblings;
           those related only by a common father are agnate
           siblings or consanguine siblings (a legal term). A
           sibling having both parents in common is a
           sibling-german or a full brother or full sister.
           These modifying terms are more commonly used for the
           more specific uterine brother, uterine sister,
           agnate brother, brother-german, etc.

From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) :
