Negation in Dagaare
AbstractNegation in Dagaare is marked mainly by pre-verb particles. Of the almost two dozen pre-verb particles in Dagaare, only four - ba, kùr], ta and t55 - are negation markers. The negation particles combine with different aspects of the verb to signal not only negation but also various other semantic relations. By some kind of negative focus however, the subject or any phrasal constituent of the predicate may be "negated" by naant or its clitic variant naa.
