If there's a set of triplets born and one of them dies, does that make the remaining two siblings twins, or triplets that have lost a sibling?
If man is 5, if man is 5, if man is 5,
then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, then the Devil is 6, the Devil is 6,
And if the Devil is 6,

then God is 7, then God is 7, then God is 7

They're still considered triplets.
Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.

Triplets. Even if one died before birth I'd consider them triplets.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

It's not the going that the pit cares about.
It's the coming.

what if you clone the DNA from one egg, and implant it into another, and fertilize both with cloned sperm, and then put both fertilized eggs into different mothers? are the children identical twins with different mothers?

I have no opinion on this matter.

It would mean a lifetime of trauma from me reminding the remaining two on a daily basis that their would-be sibling is in a landfill somewhere, and that I wish it would've been them instead.

I'm going to make an awesome parent.

when did he/she die? if its during birth or soon after, twins. if its later (ie. months or years), then triplets that have lost a sibling.

I think they would still be twins with the same mother, assuming the egg came from the same woman...

"look at the twins"
or
"look at the triplets"


And what If twins were born, and one of them died? You wouldnt refer to the living one as a twin.

I'm gonna get off the band wagon and say twins.
