KinOath is a kinship and archive retrieval application under development by Peter Withers at the Language Archive of the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics Nijmegen. It is designed to be flexible and culturally nonspecific, such that culturally different social structures can equally be represented. By linking archived data to kinship individuals, queries can be performed to retrieve the archive data based on kinship relations. The application is nearing beta release and some of the recently added features are; multiple diagram types such as freeform or kin term etc., matrimonial ring diagrams from kin type strings, customisable kin types, export to R or SPSS, customisable metadata via the Clarin Component Registry and ISOCat, improved kin type string database queries and browse-able kin trees. This talk will give an introduction to the application, discussing the current features as well as those that have yet to become available.
