Three projects are reported on. Project One, a study of thought categories among Tagalog mother-tongue speakers in and near Manila, draws heavily on the anthropological specialization known as ethnoscience. In the period under review techniques were devised for eliciting responses in the cognitive domains of disease and kinship, and preliminary findings were made. Project Two, a study of conflicting legal concepts in a changing society, reached some understanding of how traditional Tagalog norms for the use of space differ from modern Philippine law on the question. Project Three studies a booming fishing town in central Philippines. The report describes this town and suggests how the nature of the changes occurring there may be clarified and explained.
