i think it would be awesome to work in some cool negatives, like french 'ne...
guere' (hardly, barely) and 'ne... que' (only) into a conlong. i'm sure it
would be pretty easy to express 'almost' as a negative, since it means x didn't
happen anyway. can anyone else think of some other ideas expressable as
negative constructions, and/or examples from natlangs? thanks,
