Negation and nominalization in Kusunda

Mark Donohue, Bhoj Raj Gautam, Madhav Pokharel

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Negative structures are generally assumed to be maximally accessible for verbal predicates, as evidenced by the requirement in many languages that nonverbal predicates be supported by a verb when negated. Indeed, the term ‘standard negation’ is used to refer to the negation of a declarative verbal clause, and yet this is at best highly restricted in Kusunda. We discuss the mood and nomi- nalizing strategies that are employed to escape from the restrictions imposed by such a system.*
