Abstract

Kinship is a fundamental feature, the most universal and basic of all human relationships, and it is based on the ties of blood, marriage, or adoption. Kinship terminologies consist of the terms used to refer to culturally recognized kinship relations between people. Research in the anthropology field has shown that kin terminologies have a complex combinatorial structure, and it varies systematically across all the cultures and traditions. The study examines the kinship terms in the Telugu language spoken in the southern part of Tamil Nadu. The main intention of the article is to bring up the importance of having a dictionary for regional kinship terms. The study focuses on the comparison between Telugu and Tamil kinship terms. It attempts to explore the pronunciation of how it varies from Tamil and Telugu languages.
