For example, in Garde’s examples (3. nine) and (3. 10) reproduced less than, i'd change Garde’s interpretations 1 and a couple of with my very own  and , as follows: 2 (3. nine) nga-borna-ng 1>3-beget-PP 1 my baby (speaker is a male) 2 my B’s [brother’s] baby (speaker is a feminine) “I fathered him/her”  i will be able to take into consideration this a person like this: “I am this someone’s father”  i will take into consideration this somebody like this: “I am anyone like this someone’s father simply because my father is that this someone’s father’s father” (3. 10) ngan-borna-ng 1>3-beget-PP 1 my F [father] 2 my FZ [father’s sister] “she/he fathered me”  i will be able to take into consideration this anyone like this: “this is my father”  i will be able to take into consideration this somebody like this: “this is a person like my father simply because this someone’s father is my father’s father” One exciting query bobbing up from Garde’s dialogue is how sentences equivalent to his (3. nine) and (3. 10) could be interpreted after they discuss with a person’s genuine father (begetter). Garde costs Evans (2000: 14) as announcing that the time period ngan-bornang “can distinguish from in the sessions of classificatory fathers identified through the nominal time period ngabbard, one’s real father”, and he is of the same opinion with Evans that “in a few contexts, use of this time period might be able to disambiguate one’s real father from others classed as ngabbard”. while, he emphasises that “the time period ngan-bornang can certainly be used to consult one’s father’s brothers and sisters, and that such reference is very common. ” (Garde p. sixty five) it should look that the one option to reconcile the observations at the universal use of ngan-bornang to refer, in particular, to the begetter, but additionally, in its universal use, to consult the begetter’s brothers and sisters, is to posit exact meanings for this observe, approximately 1. a person’s genuine father, 2. somebody (other than one’s father) whose father is one’s father’s father. it's not my major objective, besides the fact that, to argue for a polysemy-based interpretation of kinship verbs in languages like Bininj Gunwok right here. really, it really is to teach that whether they are analysed as polysemous, they are often plausibly interpreted via intelligible traditional English – with no sentences equivalent to “she begat him”, with out words reminiscent of “they are in successive patriline”, and with no a number of disjunctive glosses. this is performed if we do issues: first, notice the significance of the recommendations ‘father’s father’ and ‘mother’s mom’ in such languages, and moment, understand an enormous and lexically encoded frame of mind in accordance with those strategies that contains the belief of viewing anyone as a person whose father is one’s father’s father. Arguably, it really is accurately this concept that underlines Garde’s locutions reminiscent of “successive patriline”. equally, Garde’s glosses with the technical time period “ascending new release matriline” (p. fifty three) can, i'd recommend, be interpreted as pertaining to anyone considered as a person whose mom is one’s mother’s mom. In his “Summary of Bininj Gunwok kinship phrases” Garde glosses the verb -bornang as “be in successive patriline, beget”, and -yawmey as “be in successive matriline, conceive (literally, ‘child-get’)”.
