Kudos grammar? :) :) :)

A "stupid" idea went through my head today.... :D :D :D

We use Kudos every day, but the only thing I don't know about them is: that is Kudos a plural from or the singular too? If that's the plural, than is the singular Kudo, true?

And if it's Kudo, than is it possible to "fix" the engine to write 1 Kudo instead of the now used 1 Kudos term? :D :D :D :D

From my quick research, you are correct in believing that Kudos is plural and Kudo is singular. I had actually wondered about this myself.

Only if you use datum where that should be used .....

Note the NSOED:

Kudo

 

colloq. Pl. -os. M20. [Back-form. from KUDOS.]

An expression of praise or gratitude for an achievement.

Kudos

 

 

colloq. L18. [Greek = praise, renown. Cf. KUDO.]

Glory, fame, renown.

J. Colville The British offensive..is being called Canadian and British troops are getting hardly any kudos. R. Frame The kudos of Cambridge and a double first didn't cancel out Surbiton.

 

So Kudo is derived from the much earlier Kudos
