                   I. Ideas & Goals


Why deal with Kinship Systems?


- unstructured knowledge space

 kinship system as central point combined with

 cultural,
 linguistic,
 historical,
 biographical and
 geographical information
                   I. Ideas & Goals


Why deal with Kinship Systems?

- important speaker information

- not for community work

    - linguistic research
         - linguistic variation
         - kinship terms
              II. Beaver Kinship System


Kinship behaviour does not have to be isomorphic
with the terminological structure:



- cultural conceptualisations of human reproduction


- kin systems are subject to time and other external
  factors

Living conditions correlate with kinship and social system
              II. Beaver Kinship System


Living conditions correlate with kinship and social system

Dravidian Kinship Type

       sex                    relative age
       generation             crossness

- crossness category

   ego generation & adjacent ones (+1/-1 generations)

   distinction parallel & cross relatives

Relations needed for representing kinship systems:


I. symmetric relation
A related to B and B related to A in the same way
e.g. spouses (/ siblings)‫‏‬

II. functional relation
for each A there is a single B in its range
e.g. mother of / father of

                     IV. ViCoS Wishlist
general:
- automatically created relations (using toolbox file)‫‏‬
- automatically generated relations (e.g. transitive relation)
- re-import into toolbox
- off line version
- export function (e.g. .jpg)
- display of more than one focused entry
- use other data categories as main / visible category
- partitioned pop-up windows‫‏‬
- staggered lines for multiple relations between two entries
                 IV. ViCoS Wishlist

specific:
- symbols for female / male (circle / triangle)‫‏‬
- additional coloured symbols (e.g. for variation patterns)‫‏‬
- automatically generated kinship relations,
e.g. cross cousin relation (MBS / MBD / FZS / FZD)

- links to archive
(based on speaker, link to e.g. biographical stories)‫‏‬

- show only subset of relations
(e.g. only palatalization patterns)

- use other data categories (e.g. code)
as main / visible category

- partitioned pop-up windows, also for relations
