  1. "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.

  2. 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

  3. "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.

  4. "Both within and between continental areas uterine succession has a greater tendency to be lateral (i.e. for the office to go first to a brother) rather than vertical (for the office to go first to a sister's son)" (630)Goody, Jack - Sideways or downwards? Lateral and vertical succession, inheritance and des..., 1970 - 2 Variables

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

  6. The role of women in agriculture is positively correlated with the rate of polygyny (183)Goody, Jack - Polygyny, economy and the role of women, 1973 - 2 Variables

    This article discusses the relationship between plural marriage and women's position in the economy. Comparisons are made between this relationship in various locations and cultures. The article concludes that female farming is not sufficient as an explanation.

  7. The following variables are dependent upon diverging devolution (transmission of property to both males and females): greater control of womens' marriage (prohibition of premarital sex, endogamy, father's brother's daughter marriage, monogamy, alternative residence) and by extension Eskimo kinship terminology which isolates the sibling group form "cousins" (296)Goody, Jack - Causal inferences concerning inheritance and property, 1970 - 6 Variables

    This paper examines diverging devolution—the transmission of property to both males and females—and its predictors and consequences. Particular attention is paid to kinship terminology and control of women’s marriage. Multiple hypotheses are supported.

  8. 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.

  9. "Diverging devolution appears to depend upon . . . stratification found in complex states, intensive use of agricultural resources, by plough, irrigation or other means" (296)Goody, Jack - Causal inferences concerning inheritance and property, 1970 - 4 Variables

    This paper examines diverging devolution—the transmission of property to both males and females—and its predictors and consequences. Particular attention is paid to kinship terminology and control of women’s marriage. Multiple hypotheses are supported.

  10. "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."
