Qs: Help with Slavic Data

Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.org>

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.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

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.

Thank you in advance for all the help.

Best wishes,

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics
