Resource list

The main body of resources is the Ethnographic fieldwork set, which contains one item per ethnographic fieldwork enterprise carried out in the province, which are all linked to a location, a language, culture groups, and published works relating to the research.

Other resource sets are listed here:

  • Descent Patterns

  • Kinship Terminology Systems

  • Polities

  • Residences Patterns

    Systems by which a Culture Group organises its residence upon marriage, i.e. where a newly-wed couple will live.
  • Researchers

  • Union Types

  • Places

    Anything with spatial extent, i.e. size, shape, or position. e.g. people, places, bowling balls, as well as abstract areas like cubes.
  • Culture groups

    Culture Groups are groups of people that have, to a reasonable extent, according to the sources mentioned, an ethnographically coherent culture. The group must be chosen in such a way that, should the properties included in it vary too much, then it would be best to define more than one group inside this one, so the properties are uniform. This makes ‘culture group’ the smallest level of delineation that allows for these criteria to be (reasonably) uniform. For example, if in a group that has only one language, one name, and a single kinship terminology system, two sub-groups have differing residence patterns, then the overarching group is not a CultureGroup in this ontologie's sens, and only the two sub-groups should be defined as culture groups. See ethno:Polity for groupings of CultureGroups. On the other hand, if the issue is with variance within a group (in the same example, residence patterns could simply be variable), then only one group should be defined, and several entries made in the corresponding property.
