Jones does not address the first question and wants to answer the second by mapping genealogical relations to kin terms with OT rules. To see the problem, start with the usual answer to the first question, namely that categorization makes the combinatorial explosion produced through genealogical tracing cognitively manageable. The categories, as we will now show, are determined through computing kin relations directly and without reference to genealogy using a kin term product for a pair of kin terms, K and L, defined as the kin term, M, that Ego would (properly) use for alter2 when Ego (properly) refers to alter1 by the kin term L and alter1 (properly) refers to alter2 by the kin term K (Read 1984; 2001; 2007 among others).

Edu/∼ seyfarth/Baboon%20research/ Abstract: Among monkeys and apes, both the recognition and classification of individuals and the recognition and classification of vocalizations constitute discrete combinatorial systems. One system maps onto the other, suggesting that during human evolution kinship classifications and language shared a common cognitive precursor. ” Although he does not discuss evolution explicitly, he suggests that the shared mechanisms underlying kinship classifications and language may have evolved from the same cognitive precursor.

Doweb a School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics; bSchool of Computer Science and Software Engineering, Clayton School of Information Technology, Monash University, VIC 3800, Australia. au/∼ dld/ Abstract: Jones uses a mechanism from the linguistic theory, Optimality Theory, to generate the range of kin systems observed in human cultures and human languages. The observed distribution of kinship systems across human societies suggests that some possibilities are preferred over others, a result that would indicate Jones’ model needs to be refined, especially in its treatment of markedness.
