Title: Mokša Mordvin verbal negation described and compared with other Uralo-Altaic languages
Author: Fournet, Arnaud
Abstract: Some languages use a single unit to express verbal negation, like not/n't in English. Some others have several units according to the moods and tenses of the verb. This is the case for the Uralic Mokša-Mordvin language. This feature can be even used for descriptive purposes to determine the moods and tenses of this language and this approach makes it apparent that the traditional descriptions of Mokša cannot be accepted without some reservations. The first part focuses on the description of verbal negative forms in Mokša. Once properly described, Mokša-Mordvin is compared with other languages of northern Eurasia, mostly of the Uralo-Altaic type, in the second part.
