Kinship Nouns

Kinship nouns are a subclass of possessed nouns that refer to kinship. These are otherwise rational nouns that take a pronominal clitic in place of a classifier. In direct speech,they can take a regular clitic such as gene or isi.

Kinship terms distinguish gender and lineage and somewhat distinguish generation. The kinship system is classificatory in that everyone is a part of the system somehow.
