Notation (to the PapuaWeb edition)
"After further thought, I now reject my suggestion that some men's houses are patrifilial and other matrifilial. Rather I am convinced that all are in principle patrifilial. I think that what my informants were trying to tell me was (1) Awok men's house group, which had split off from Namkay, stood still in an affinial relationship to Namkay, and (2) there were de facto a great many cases in Awok in which men had succeeded to their mothers' brothers fireplaces. The model of the men's house group is one of two groups of siblings and their descendants intermarrying. This is, I think, simply a matter of the concept of two 'conical kindreds' intermarrying writ large."
