The terms on the left are descriptive terms. They are used to objectively refer to kinship relationships or to speak of one own family members when talking to outside people.

The terms on the right are deferential terms. Those in this page are used either to address one’s own elders or to speak of other people’s elders deferentially.

The spousal relationships also lack deferential address terms.

Descriptive terms for one’s own spouse tend to proliferate partly because of the awareness of the historical meanings of the traditional terms and partly because of taboo against directly referring to one’s own spouse in public.
