Ripunjoy Sonowal

Abstract :

The present paper reports the kinship terminologies of the Nocte tribe. The qualitative data was collected from Dehing Kinar Nocte Village located along the Assam–Arunachal Pradesh border in Diugarh district. The kinship terms are arranged according to consanguineous (lineal and collateral) and affinal relations. The Nocte kinship  system till today maintains its original characteristics to a large extent. In the study village this is quite evident from the kinship relations that they maintain and the terms they use. Distinct kinship terms are used in some relations to differentiate the age as in the case of others, sisters, fathers’ others, fathers’ sisters, mothers’ others and mothers’ sisters.
