Fictional exampleEdit

Would it help to give an example from a fictional work (Citizen of the Galaxy by Robert Heinlein)? JulieKahan (talk) 10:35, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

Go ahead, add it under a new subsection "In popular culture". 202.156.182.84 (talk) 19:34, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Original researchEdit

Somebody please find a reference for this and add it to the article: Etymology: "moitié" is the french translation of the english word for "half" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2607:F2C0:E2A4:13:D15:FF0C:6B34:C3E1 (talk) 18:53, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

DubiousEdit

"It is an exogamous clan system with only two clans." Well, no. It is an exogamous clan system, with either:

  • two clans, each called a moiety;
  • four clans, each called a section; formed by splitting a moiety in two; or
  • eight clans, each called a subsection; formed by splitting a section in two.

At least in Australia.
