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! Same page as above.
