Title:Copala Trique Kinship Terminology
Abstract:The consanguineal kinship terminology of the Copala Trique is basically Hawaiian. Affinal terms differ for consanguines' spouses and spouse's consanguines; the latter terms are defined by relative age. Co-parent terms are Spanish loanwords, while terms for god-, step-, and half-relatives are formed by adding modifiers to basic terms. When individuals are related in two different ways, the consanguineal relation (which is prior in time) uusually takes precedence. Kinship terms sometimes take modifiers for greater precision. There is a proliferation of terms of address; they are not in an isomorphic relationship to terms of reference, and are often used to non-relatives also. The Copala Trique consanguineal system is structurally identical to the Chicahuaxtla Trique system, but the affinal systems differ, mainly in that Chicahuaxtla Trique uses generation rather than relative age to define the terms of reference for spouse's consanguines.
