About Kudo Sikā! Ni nē Kutō hikùko mono. Hello! Here's a brief overview of Kudo:
  • Fluid-S active-stative, with SOV word order in general and VSO for questions.
  • No hard distinction between nouns and verbs. Adjectives are also pretty verb-like.
  • Various mandatory classifiers for numeric quantities of things.
  • Two degrees of both past and future tense. The distant tenses are most often used in storytelling, predictions, and promises.
  • Polypersonal marking on transitive verbs.
  • Generic locative/prepostional case can be further specified with words meaning inside of, in front of, etc.
  • Nouns, demonstratives, etc. are commonly used to politely refer to second and third persons.
  • Conscript is once again the old (updated) Kudo runic-style alphabet, kaòhō kaohoq.
  • NEW: Kudo spelling has officially been standardized to match up with pronunciation in most cases. Old translations will not be updated.
  • I can't stop screwing around w/ this! Anyway, enjoy the shiny new tone system.
  • Sample of Kudo[view] Shìka napita hatǎxwahe.
