  1. "As far as the mother-in-law is concerned, matrilineal societies are most formal and bilateral least" (193)Goody, Jack - Cross-sex patterns of kin behavior: a comment, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This paper examines the behavior between close kin and affines of the opposite sex. The authors "point to certain differences between continental areas that are related to specific social factors, including the structure of descent groups and the nature of marriage arrangements."

  2. "Differences in the brother-sister relationship [avoidance-respect-joking] show a distribution linked with descent. Patrilineal societies show considerably more informality in their cross-sex sibling relations than do either matrilineal or bilateral societies" (193)Goody, Jack - Cross-sex patterns of kin behavior: a comment, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This paper examines the behavior between close kin and affines of the opposite sex. The authors "point to certain differences between continental areas that are related to specific social factors, including the structure of descent groups and the nature of marriage arrangements."

  3. "Both for real property and movable property there is a very significant association of patrilineal systems with vertical transmission and matrilineal ones with lateral transmission" (634)Goody, Jack - Sideways or downwards? Lateral and vertical succession, inheritance and des..., 1970 - 2 Variables

    This article examines direction of succession and inheritance as they relate to culture area and kinship system. Several hypotheses are presented and all are supported.

  4. The incidence of bridewealth decreases along a kin group scale with highest incidence in patrilineal and then double descent kin groups, matrilineal kin groups, and finally lowest incidence in bilateral groups. The less frequent marriage transactions, dowry and gift exchange, are not associated with any particular kin group. Absence of any transactions is related to kin groups in the reverse order of the bridewealth-kin group relationship (51)Goody, Jack - Bridewealth and dowry in Africa and Eurasia, 1973 - 2 Variables

    This chapter considers several forms of wealth transmission at marriage. The relationships between descent rules and incidence of bridewealth, dowry, and gift exchange are examined and several patterns emerge from empirical analysis.

  5. "The tables show a strong correlation between Omaha terms and patrilineal unilineal descent groups and between Crow terms and matrilineal unilineal descent groups" (140)Goody, Jack - Cousin terms, 1970 - 2 Variables

    This article tests hypotheses related to kinship terms, cousin marriage, and descent rules. Omaha, Crow, Eskimo, and Iroquois systems are each significantly associated with different kinship rules. Material from Northern Ghana is also considered.

  6. "In cross-cousin relationship . . . joking is the most frequent mode of behavior. . . . Avoidance and respect are almost exclusively associated with prohibition on marriage and license is associated only with permitted marriage. . . . Joking behavior is found with both forms" (199, 201)Goody, Jack - Cross-sex patterns of kin behavior: a comment, 1974 - 2 Variables

    This paper examines the behavior between close kin and affines of the opposite sex. The authors "point to certain differences between continental areas that are related to specific social factors, including the structure of descent groups and the nature of marriage arrangements."

  7. ". . . descent groups of the matrilineal kind are significantly less likely to be found in the Eurasian continent. Matrilineal descent groups . . . are found more frequently in Africa than in Eurasia" (636)Goody, Jack - Sideways or downwards? Lateral and vertical succession, inheritance and des..., 1970 - 2 Variables

    This article examines direction of succession and inheritance as they relate to culture area and kinship system. Several hypotheses are presented and all are supported.

  8. The proportion of uterine systems of inheritance (matrilineal) is greater in Africa than in Eurasia or other continents. But agnatic (patrilineal) inheritance is predominant worldwide (630)Goody, Jack - Sideways or downwards? Lateral and vertical succession, inheritance and des..., 1970 - 2 Variables

    This article examines direction of succession and inheritance as they relate to culture area and kinship system. Several hypotheses are presented and all are supported.

  9. "There is a distinct association of Eskimo terms with bilateral [descent] systems . . . and with diverging devolution . . . the transmission of property to offspring of both sexes" (129)Goody, Jack - Cousin terms, 1970 - 3 Variables

    This article tests hypotheses related to kinship terms, cousin marriage, and descent rules. Omaha, Crow, Eskimo, and Iroquois systems are each significantly associated with different kinship rules. Material from Northern Ghana is also considered.

  10. ". . . residential propinquity influences a society's kin avoidance. . . . [There is an] association between father-in-law/daughter-in-law avoidance and [their] degree of community coresidence" (243, 248)Witkowski, Stanley - A cross-cultural test of the proximity hypothesis, 1972 - 2 Variables

    This paper tests the proximity hypothesis (used by Murdock [1949]) which posits that residential propinquity will be associated with parent-in-law avoidance and kin terminology. Several operational hypotheses are tested but none are supported. The author suggests that this finding may cast doubt other hypotheses that underlie Murdock’s findings, such as the participation hypothesis.
