Abstract

In recent time, the value placed on kinship ties are phasing out just like any other aspect of the Igbo culture. Language goes with culture and the two cannot be separated. As the culture is dying, so also the language with which the culture is interpreted. The aim of this paper is to expose the kinship ties and the terms in Igbo. In doing this, the researcher made use of observation and recorded materials in collecting his data. The researcher observed that both the value placed on kinship ties and the terms are dying off and this paper is a means of recording the people’s value.
