  • Klumpp, Gerson (Helsingin yliopiston kirjasto, 2022)
    This article presents an etymology for the currently unetymologized Kamas kinship term malmi, in older sources manmi, meaning ‘husband of daughter or younger sister’. It is suggested that the term is a compound made up of the two Proto Samoyed in-law terms *wänə̑, meaning ‘in-law’, and *wijə̑, meaning ‘son-in-law’.
