Parental Group--------------------------1. Father Aperi In this group there are three terms which seem to me2. Father's Brother Aperi waka to require further enquiry. I have filled in the 3. Mother's sister's Husband Aperi waka words in red pencil which it seems to me youwill probably find to be the correct ones.4. Mother's pirauru Aperi waka? [in red] is right You will observe that I have added two relationshipswhich were not in the paper I sent you, namely 5. Mother Andri Pirauru that is to say the [relationsh- crossed out] relation between certain men and certain women 6. Mother's Sister Andri waka besides that of Noa. In [Noa - crossed out] Noa a man and a woman are husband and wife to each other7. Father's brother's wife Andri waka - in Pirauru several men are husbands temporarily to one woman, or several women are8. Father's Pirauru Andri waka ? [in red] is right temporary wives to one man. In the following tables I have called the Pirauru "accessory 9. Mother's Brother Kaka husband" or "accessory wife".I think that No 12 should be papa and not andri. 10. Father's Sister's Husband Kaka Please to refer to the diagram given in Table B.3 is the"father's sister" of 7 - being the father's sister 11. Father's sister Papa she cannot be his andri - but is his papa; now3 is also the "mother's brother's wife" of 7 and being 12. Mother's Brother's Wife [andri - crossed out] Papa? [in red] papa is right in both cases the same "theoretical" individual she might be expected to have the same relationship term. Moreover you will see that while 7 is of the B murdu while 3 is of the A murdu - Hence since a son takes his mother's murdu - 3 being of A murdu cannot be the mother (andri) of 7B.
