Relationship terms

On June 28 of 2000, we had a poly discussion on the topic of `Degrees (or levels) of relationships'. As an opening exercise, we did a brainstorming session to come up with a list of all the words and phrases we could think of to describe different kinds and levels of relationships (deliberately leaving `relationship' a bit ambiguous, but in a poly context). We wrote them down on a whiteboard, and I promised to transcribe them right away. And here they are, only four months later! I'm so proud of myself!

At the bottom are a few additional terms that people suggested via email.

As you can see, these aren't terribly consistent as to part of speech, but it was basically a brainstorming session. See something missing from the list? Send me mail at <js+poly@aq.org> and I'll add it.
