Kin term diversity is the result of multilevel, historical processes

  • Fiona M. Jordan (a1) and Michael Dunn (a1)

Explanations in the domain of kinship can be sought on several different levels: Jones addresses online processing, as well as issues of origins and innateness. We argue that his framework can more usefully be applied at the levels of developmental and historical change, the latter especially. A phylogenetic approach to the diversity of kinship terminologies is most urgently required.
