An alternative way of arguing that a component is redundant in a definition of a kin term is to isolate the set of all kin terms distinguished from the original term by this component and then show that this set of terms is actually demarcated by other features (components), already used in the definition of the original term. 2. However, it can be noted that the feature ‘generation’, already used in the definition of husband, successfully discriminates husband, which is of contemporary generation, from the very same set of terms, as all of them are of ascending generation.
