Triangular Kinship Terms


Younger brother of a female. The term is the same for both a male or female speaker (i.e. a man's younger brother or a woman's younger brother) but the kundebi term can change depending on whether the relationship is same sex sibling or cross-sex sibling. fyB Note: In Kunwinjku dialect, women call all their siblings rdardda (variant pronunciations are rdarddah, rdarda, rdardah) EXCEPT their older sisters whom they call yabok. In Kuninjku dialect women call their younger brothers djakerr and all their sisters yabok. This search engine takes more of a Kuninjku-centric approach, for now, whereby djakerr and rdardda are seen as synonyms for 'younger brother'.
