A New Tool for Eliciting and Comparing Kinship Terminologies
Julia Fine and I presented our work on KinQuest at the 4th International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation.
KinQuest is a new tool for eliciting and comparing kinship terminologies. It's a pilot survey that elicits exhaustive kinship data with the ability to adapt to many different kinds of kinship systems. This is the first step of a much larger project to develop an expansive cross-linguistic survey. Slides below.
