Nursery words and hypocorisms among Germanic kinship terms

By using Jakobson’s (1960: 127-130) criteria for determining the nursery-word sta-tus of a given lexeme, I argue in this article that, even if we should no longer re-gard PG *aiþīn-/-ōn- ‘mother’ (Goth. aiþei), *aiþma- ‘daughter’s husband’ and *faþōn- ‘father’s sister’ as nursery words or hypocorisms (Hansen 2017: 207-220), we should certainly still do so with PG *ammōn- ‘parent’s mother; wet nurse’, *attan- ‘father’ (Goth. atta), *basōn- ‘father’s sister’ and *mōnōn-/mōmōn- ‘moth-er; mother’s sister’.
