DescriptionThe Cháʔknyá community has a rich set of kinship and affinity terms, consisting mostly of native terms, but also showing evidence of Spanish influence in the expansion of compadrazgo affinity terms. The system would appear to be a Hawaiian system, with little lexical differentiation between lineal and collateral relatives. As in many languages, many of these terms are inalienably possessed, and some of the recordings here may include these terms elicited in an unpossessed form along with forms inflected for first-person singular and second-person singular forms.
