KinOath is a kinship application under development by Peter Withers at the Language Archive of the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics Nijmegen in conjunction with the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology Halle (Saale). Its primary goal is to connect kinship data with archived data, such as audio, video or written resources while also being closely integrated with the archive software such as Arbil. Beyond this goal it is designed to be flexible and culturally nonspecific, such that culturally different social structures can equally be represented. Kin type strings are usedthrough out the application for constructing and searching data sets. The representation of kin terms is also integrated into the application allowing comparative diagrams of kin terms. Graphical representation of the data is an important part of the application and the diagrams produced are intended to very flexible and of publishable quality. This talk will show examples of how the current prototype of this application can be used and also discuss areas that are underdevelopment.
