We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
I am doing a comparative study of negation in non-verbal and existential sentences in Slavic languages. I have perused a number of grammars but haven’t been able to get all the data I need. My dataset is particularly bad for Belorus'; the datasets for Czech, Slovak, Sorbian and Cassubian are not as bad but have big holes in them too.
I have set up wiki at http://negation.scribblewiki.com
There I list the sentences I need help with as well other issues pertinent to some of the South Slavic languages.
Any help with this will be greatly appreciated. I will post a summary if there is interest.
