Duhinos has an SVO typology. It has no declensions or conjugations, and adjectives are placed after the nouns they modify. An interesting feature of Duhinos is its copulas. A word or phrase is connected to its definition by "es." When placing a word or phrase into a group, "esta" is used. "Stahes" is grammatically correct, too. All other copulas, including numerical equations, are expressed using "sta."
