Talysh - Kinship

The Talysh preserve divisions into kin groups and tribal groups. The patriarchal origins are mostly preserved in the mountain regions of Talysh. Reckoning of descent follows the patriline, with a kinship system characteristic of the Iranian-speaking peoples. Kin terms are father (nïe), son ( zua ), grandson (neve), grandfather ( dede ), brother ( bul ), sister (nëve), female cousin ( amu kine ), male cousin ( amu zua ), father-in-law (eve), stepfather ( dedelïg ), and stepdaughter ( ogeey kinee ).
