  1. Seminomadic people tend to build semicircular dwellings directly on the ground surface (130).Binford, Lewis R. - Mobility, housing, and environment: a comparative study, 1990 - 3 Variables

    This article examines housing, mobility, and subsistence among hunter-gatherers. Several statistical associations are supported. The author uses findings to evaluate the relative complexity of societies from the archaeological record.

  3. Anticipated dwelling use will be associated with floor area and wall height (13).Diehl, Michael W. - Architecture as a material correlate of mobility strategies: some implicatio..., 1992 - 3 Variables

    This article investigates a possible association between mobility strategy and dwelling construction. The author tests a broad hypothesis that planned duration of use for a structure is positively associated with the investment costs in building a dwelling. Some operational hypotheses are supported; others are not.

  6. Ground plan shape will be associated with settlement permanenceArwen L. Feather - Circular or rectangular ground plans: Some costs and benefits, 1996 - 2 Variables

    In the present study, Feather explores the relationship between floor plan shape and settlement permanence in order to theorize how mobility strategy influences floor plan choice. Feather incorporates the theoretical framework of previous studies by examining how floor plans and building materials vary across mobility and residential strategies, as well as social and political concerns.

  9. "Hawaiian kin terms . . . are associated with the prohibition on [cross] cousin marriage" (136)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.
