Description The aim of this paper is to analyse kinship terminology in Western and Southern Slavonic languages and to detect their origin. Kinship terminology is very stable, however influences from other languages and the time since dissolution of Slavonic unity might have an impact on the vocabulary. By finding all the terms for kinship in these languages, and by finding their origin, we can conclude, that most of the kinship terms in Western and Southern Slavonic languages can be traced back to Proto-Indo-European language, although some discrepancies have occurred. Among those there is influence of Turkish and German language, as well as different way of creating terms for sibling's children and parent's sibling's children. Discrepancies can be also seen in naming men that entered family thanks to wedding (husbands of aunts, sisters and daughters). Even thought several other differences are present, in general kinship terminology in Western and Southern Slavonic languages is very stable.
