A little bit about myself

As you may have noticed from the phrase and pronoun sections, the word order of Kushan is Verb-Subject-Object.  In general, when making a sentence, follow these rules:
 
-The only words that ever go between the verb and subject are grammatical particles used for things like negation, forming a question, etc.
 
- The verb is normally the first word, unless you want to stress a certain word (never a subject or object pronoun, but usually a time expression or demonstrative pronoun.) 
 
- The object, if there is one, always follows the subject.
 
So here's how the sentence structure looks.  Parenthesis indicate that the word is optional.
 
(Stressed word) Verb (Grammatical particles/infinitive verbs) Subject (Other particles) (Object) (Manner) (Time) (Place)
