Negation in Monsang

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This paper presents a comprehensive description of negation and describes two types of negation, viz., sentential negation and constituent negation in Monsang, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Manipur, India. The study finds that in sentential negation, the negative markers -má: (~-máʔ) and -mé occurs postverbally and negates the whole proposition, whereas in constituent negation, the negative morpheme serves as a negative word and occurs immediately after the constituent it negates, and only that constituent falls within the scope of negation. The difference between these two is mainly due to the scope of the negative operator.
