valley rafter joint
Explanation:
A Bohle is a plank, but since it's used as a rafter, that's what I would call it. A Schiftung is a connection, but I would use joint.

Kehlbohlenschiftung
Valley plank joint

Bohle - plank
Kehle - (hip roof) valley
Schiftung - joint
Klauenschiftung – bird's mouth attachment (sic)
Kehlschifter – valley jack rafter
Kehlsparren – valley rafter

schiften: "to join a rafter lengthwise upon another"
In building a conventionally-framed wood building having a hip roof, the lengths and cutting angles for the hip rafters from raw planks, and the correct nailing locations for jack rafters to the hip rafters, must be determined.
