Linguistic LingField(s):  Typology

Query:   Hi LINGUIST List subscribers,

I am a currently working on a typological project on negation at the
University of Stockholm, Sweden. I am more specifically interested in
the lexicalization of negation.

I was wondering if in the languages that you are familiar with if there
are any lexical verbs that express negation in a special way (negative
existentials and copula verbs are excluded from this). For example, in
Bulgarian, the verb "njamam" (not.have.1SG.PRES) is also used to
negate the future.

I am grateful for any suggestions. Thank you very much!
