A. kuno=A=O A have, get O
B. kuno=CS CS become (CC, adjective)

Transitive kuno is derived from ku(wu) ‘hand’ and the verb no ‘come’. Its basic meaning is ‘get’ or ‘have’ as in physically possess. It can be used as a copula meaning ‘become’.

Kuno can also be used for sensory input like camme. Unlike camme, it is neutral in regards to deliberateness and volition. Also, since dunno exists, it is not used with doŋi. It is commonly used with sada and giŋi for hearing and smelling/tasting. Its negative is also the common negative of the camme-based verb phrases, primarily because one cannot easily judge if someone is deliberately not listening vs not hearing.

The causative forms of kuno mean ‘give’.
