Synonyms of "Offspring" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre offspring e descendant e posterity ?
A: "Offspring" means a direct child. If a person gives birth, the baby is their "offspring."

"Descendants" can be separated by many, many generations. A parent's baby can be their "descendant," and a parent's great-great-great-grandchild 200 years later can also be their "descendant." If we want to discuss our family's long history, we might say we are "descended" from a person who lived a long time ago.

"Posterity" has a similar meaning to "descendants," with more of a feeling of "ALL the future descendants, ALL the future generations, forever."

A: The words essentially mean the same thing, however, "offspring" sounds more "technical" or clinical." In this sense, the relationship of the words "offspring" and "child" is similar to the relationship of the words "wife/husband" and "spouse," or the relationship of the words "brother/sister" and "sibling."
Typically, we use the word "offspring" to refer to animals, rather than people, but it is also possible (but rare) to use it to refer to people.
