I've just now completed the paragraphs on Denden negation, using the discussion about this subject we had in July. I hope nobody minds that he's going to be quoted? The pages is up now: And you can find it in the chapter on verbal morphology. Also, I've just put the finishing touches to the story behind the discovery of Denden - I've even found a photograph of the man who discovered the manuscripts and a photograph of one of the original Denden manuscripts in the British Library!
