So far, this is one of the parts which I haven't worked with yet. The only thing in Raikudu is the prefix "rai-", which make a proper noun of the root, such as pila "see" (v) > raipila "the Seer" (is that correct English?). "Raikudu" itself derives from kudu "to be regular", (the only root to survive two, three relexifications of the language, thanks to the name itself). Well, I haven't yet decided if "rai{root}" should be a noun or an adjective.. Or if I should have different prefixes for different things.. yet to be seen. The language is a priori (if someone failed to guess that). - Veoler
