Standard negation (Synja Khanty)

Sym: Standard negation is symmetric.

(1) xalewat muŋ wɔ̄š-a man-l-uw.

tomorrow we town-lat go-prs-1pl

‘Tomorrow, we are going to the town.’ (S. O.)

(2) xalewat muŋ wɔ̄š-a at man-l-uw.

tomorrow we town-lat neg go-prs-1pl

‘Tomorrow, we are not going to the town.’ (S. O.)

In Synja Khanty, the negation of the predicate is marked by the at negative particle. It does not trigger any differences in verb form.
