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 need to complete my dataset on negation for the languages listed below. I have the basic facts on negation for all of them but I haven't been able to find answers to all the questions in my questionnaire in the sources I consulted -- that is to say the standard grammars. For most of the languages listed below all I need are one or two examples, usually a locative sentence with a definite subject such as 'Tom is at home' vs. 'Tom is not at home'.
