Summary:   Several weeks ago I posted a request for help with data from Slavic
languages. The response was amazing and very very helpful.

I would really like to thank
All the people who patiently translated boring sentences, answered endless
questions, sent pointers to further sources or simply talked:
Marian Sloboda (Belorussian), Markus Ciger (Czech, Slovak, Kashubian),
Darina Klevarova (Czech), Vladislav Knoll, Keith Goeringer (Kashubian),
Stefan Bakalaivanov (Macedonian), Marcin Kilarski (Polish), Maria
Koptjevskaja-Tamm (Russian), Bojana Petric, Branka Diamantidis; Marijana
Mihelcic, Mima Dedaic, Natasa Gajic, Sonja Petrovic-Lundberg, Boban
Arsenievic, Dejan Matic, Srecko Rijetkovic (Serbo-Croatian), Vasek Nemcik,
Mojmir Docekal (Slovak), Morgan Nilsson (Slovene), Eduard Werner/Edward
Wornar, Mareike Katchourovskaja (Upper and Lower Sorbian), Sophia Katrenko,
Yuliya Yurchuk (Ukrainian), plus the people who filled in data on the
negation wiki, did not email me, and remained anonymous!
(I hope I haven’t missed anyone, if I did, that was not intentional, please
write & scold)

The summary got to include several graphs and numerous maps (the latter
because I love maps and like to see things in space ). So I put it all a
pdf file which can be accessed at

I welcome any feedback and corrections of things that I might have

Many thanks again to all who responded!

All good wishes,
