In many native American languages, kinship terms (those used for family relationships) must always have an element expressing "my . . ." or "his . . . " or "your . . .".

For example, in the Natick language (a member of the Algonquian language family) used by the Massachusetts, Narragansett and Wampanoag tribes you would have to say wuttaunoh (his daughter) nuttaunes (my daughter) or kuttaunoh (your daughter).

In Arapaho (yet another Algonquian language) my daughter is notóóne.
