Taqagmiut Eskimo kinship terminology / by Nelson H. H. Graburn.: R42-3/1964-1E-PDF

"This dissertation deals with the problems of regularities and inconsistencies in kinship terminologies collected from a balanced sample of the population of Sugluk. The object is to show where and why these occur, to relate them to inter-kin behavior patterns, and to point out more exactly the problems for further research in the same area. It has been found by others and myselfthat the Eskimos of this area exhibit a certain "flexibility" not only in their inter-kin behavior, but also in their systems of terminology. One of the major problems tackled is to try to relate the "flexibility" in these two fields of behavior."--p. 10.
