In the area of mathematical logic and computer science known as type theory, a kind is the type of a type constructor or, less commonly, the type of a higher-order type operator. A kind system is essentially a simply typed lambda calculus "one level up", endowed with a primitive type, denoted and called "type", which is the kind of any (monomorphic) data type.[clarification needed] A kind is sometimes confusingly described as the "type of a (data) type", but this is a triviality, unless one considers polymorphic types to be data types. Syntactically, it is natural to consider polymorphic types to be type constructors, thus monomorphic types to be nullary type constructors. But all nullary constructors, thus all monomorphic types, have the same, simplest kind; namely .
Since higher-order type operators are uncommon in programming languages, in most programming practice, kinds are used to distinguish between data types and the types of constructors which are used to implement parametric polymorphism. Kinds appear, either explicitly or implicitly, in languages with complex[vague] type systems, such as Haskell and Scala.
- , pronounced "type", is the kind of all data types seen as nullary type constructors, and also called proper types in this context. This normally includes function types in functional programming languages.
- is the kind of a unary type constructor, e.g. of a list type constructor.
- is the kind of a binary type constructor (via currying), e.g. of a pair type constructor, and also that of a function type constructor (not to be confused with the result of its application, which itself is a function type, thus of kind *)
- is the kind of a higher-order type operator from unary type constructors to proper types. See Pierce (2002), chapter 32 for an application.
Kinds in Haskell 
(Note: Haskell documentation uses the same arrow for both function types and kinds.)
- , pronounced "type" is the kind of all data types.
- is the kind of a unary type constructor, which takes a type of kind and produces a type of kind .
An inhabited type (as proper types are called in Haskell) is a type which has values. For instance, ignoring type classes which complicate the picture,
4 is a value of type
[1, 2, 3] is a value of type
[Int] (list of Ints). Therefore,
[Int] have kind , but so does any function, for instance
Int -> Bool or even
Int -> Int -> Bool.
A type constructor takes one or more type arguments, and produces a data type when enough arguments are supplied, i.e. it supports partial application thanks to currying. This is how Haskell achieves parametric types. For instance, the type
 (list) is a type constructor - it takes a single argument to specify the type of the elements of the list. Hence,
[Int] (list of Ints),
[Float] (list of Floats) and even
[[Int]] (list of lists of Ints) are valid applications of the
 type constructor. Therefore,
 is a type of kind . Because
Int has kind , applying it to
 results in
[Int], of kind . The 2-tuple constructor
(,) has kind , the 3-tuple constructor
(,,) has kind and so on.
Kind inference 
data Tree z = Leaf | Fork (Tree z) (Tree z)
the kind of
z could be anything, including , but also etc. Haskell by default will always infer kinds to be , unless the type explicitly indicates otherwise (see below). Therefore the type checker will reject the following use of
type FunnyTree = Tree  -- invalid
because the kind of
, does not match the expected kind for
z, which is always .
Higher-order type operators are allowed however. For instance:
data App unt z = Z (unt z)
has kind , i.e.
unt is expected to be a unary data constructor, which gets applied to its argument, which must be a type, and returns another type.
