Kuteb is a Jukunoid language (Benue-Congo, Niger-Congo) spoken in Taraba State in Central-East Nigeria. The approximately 100 000 speakers have traditionally lived as farmers, hunters, and fishermen. Typologically, Kuteb shows remnants of a noun class system. Ambitransitive verbs and serial verb constructions are common, and the basic word order in the language is SVO. In contrast to other Jukunoid languages, Kuteb has a number of dedicated terms for smells. The study on the language of perception in Kuteb addresses how the encoding of smell compares to other sensory modalities like touch.
