    I find it easier to figure out the relationships if they are from the same patrimoiety. So, my first attempt is using Julie (Ngalwakadj) and Roxanne (Ngalbangardi).
    – Ngalwakadj will call Ngalbangardi djedje and Ngalbangardi will call Ngalwakadj karrard

    I find it harder when people are from opposite patrimoieties. So, my second attempt is using Roxanne (Ngalbangardi) and Frank (Nabulanj)
    – Ngalbangardi’s daughter will be Ngalkangila. She can marry either Nabulanj or Nangarridj. So let’s assume Ngalbangardi’s daughter married Nabulanj. Ngalkangila will call him her kanjok, and Ngalbangardi will call him nakurrng. Nabulanj will call ngalbangardi ngalkurrng.

    If the above structure is correct, then Nabulanj will call Ngalwakadj kakkak.
