About Kudo
  • Fluid-S active-stative language.
  • SOV word order in general, VSO for questions.
  • No hard distinction between nouns and verbs.
  • Two degrees of both past and future tense. The distant tenses are most often used in storytelling and predictions.
  • Verbs agree with both agent and patient.
  • Kudo spelling was never standardised, so many words can be spelled historically or phonetically*.
  • Instead of pronouns, words like this, that, son, friend, etc. are used to refer to second and third persons.


  • *This dictionary preserves the historical form of native Kudo words.
