  1. "A long postpartum sex taboo will be associated with a primary cross-parallel component in sibling terminology" (185)Nerlove, Sara - Sibling terminology and cross-sex behavior, 1967 - 2 Variables

    This article examines variation in kinship terminology. The authors develop a new typology of kinds of kinship terminologies, and they propose that terminologies will distinguish siblings of the same and opposite gender when there is a cultural emphasis on cross-sex relations. Empirical analysis supports that a prolonged post-partum sex taboo (rather than sibling avoidance) predicts the presence of a primary cross-parallel component in sibling terminology.

  2. "Brother-sister avoidance patterns will be significantly associated with the presence of a primary cross-parallel component in sibling terminology" (184)Nerlove, Sara - Sibling terminology and cross-sex behavior, 1967 - 2 Variables

  3. "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."

  4. "We predicted a positive correlation between duration of the post partum sex taboo and severity of [brother-sister] avoidance" (132)Stephens, William N. - Kin-avoidance, 1962 - 2 Variables

    The authors test the male Oedipus complex hypothesis with a prediction suggesting that the scale of kin-avoidance is related to "a phobic attitude towards incest" (129).

  5. "Long postpartum taboo will be more frequent in societies requiring bridewealth or exchange of a female relative to obtain a wife" (243)Saucier, Jean-Francois - Correlates of the long post-partum taboo: a cross-cultural study, 1972 - 2 Variables

    This study investigates correlates of the post-partum sex taboo. Empirical analysis identifies several predictors, from extensive agriculture to localized kin groups. The authors suggest that the taboo imposes a burden on women and unmarried or monogamous young men, and it is best maintained in a community in which elders are in firm control and married women are considered outsiders due to village exogamy.
