    • Abstract:
      The article cites two reports within the issue regarding psychology research including one by C. Kemp and T. Regier and one by M. C. Frank and N. D. Goodman investigating the relationship between language and communication in shaping concepts, such as kinship categories. Topics include a brief overview of the origins of research of kinship categories, Kemp and Regier's research exploring the relation between observed kinship systems and all possible such systems, and Frank and Goodman's research that provides an experimentally grounded characterization of communicative optimization. A diagram illustrating two inverse types of kin category systems and their worldwide distribution is presented.
