Regarding my own conlang Old Albic, I don't have yet worked out the kinship system in detail. All I have for now are these terms: atto `father' amme `mother' hena `child' miro `son' rile `daughter' and the Swedish-style compounds attatto `paternal grandfather' attamme `paternal grandmother' ammatto `maternal grandfather' ammamme `maternal grandmother' Greetings, Jörg.
