This paper describes Muna kinship terms. The Muna kinship system is basically of the Eskimo type. In ego’s own generation terms distinguish between siblings and cousins, and in the first ascending and descending generations terms distinguish between father, mother, uncle and aunt, and between child and nephew/niece. In most kinship terms sex is not distinguished.
