  1. Wait… Am I interpreting “any male child of the next generation” correctly? That is, you’d use mamōīñ to refer to one’s son, one’s nephew, or one’s grandson?

  2. Next generation would include sons and nephews. Grandsons (and grandnephews) would be the generation after that. So, no, only sons and nephews, not grandsons. The Kēleni aren’t particular about how many people should or should not be in a relationship, nor what gender they ought to be, but they are particular about not crossing the generations.
