NegPtclNonStc: Negation of the predicate is expressed through the use of a standard negative word, which cannot function alone as a sentence.
(1) χolǝm mān ūs-n min-ew.
(2) χolǝm mān ūs-n at min-ew.
In Northern Mansi, the negation of the predicate is expressed by a negative particle (cf. (1) and (2)), which always appears before the verb (if the verb has a prefix, it is put between the prefix and the verb) (Kálmán 1976:67-8). The substantive verb is negated by the āťim particle. The negation of the entire clause, however, is expressed by the āťi particle (Kálmán 1976: 68).
