How is the word "kudos" pronounced? Is it singular or plural?
(N. Gayathri, Madurai)
The "ku" in the first syllable is pronounced like the word "cue", and the following "o" is like the "o" in "hot", "got", and "dot". The main stress is on the first syllable. When you receive "kudos" from someone for having done something, you receive his admiration and respect. The word is usually followed by a singular verb. Here are a few examples.
*Radha received kudos for coming first in the race.
*Unfortunately the author didn't receive the kudos that was her due.
*Kudos is the last the thing I expect to get from my friends.
