Dear All,

I would like to find out what negation strategies are used for locational predications in Kawésqar (ISO code alc-CHL). I have consulted two descriptions: (Aguilera 2001, Clairis 1985). There are multiple examples of negation of possession and negation of existence in Clairis but nothing on negation of location; the discussion of negation of locatives in Aguilera is fascinating but I haven’t been able to find anything on their negation. Knowing about this is important for the classification I am working on.

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated. I am aware of the bibliography listed in Glottolog. Contact information to anyone who might be working on Kawésqar will be highly valued as well.

Many thanks in advance.

My best wishes,
