a student of mine is interested in languages in which constitent negation
is NOT possible (i.e. languages in which negation can only have scope over
all constituents in the clause). My impression is that this is fairly
common in Austronesian and uncommon in Europe - we'd be interested in
data/references from other parts of the world.
I'll post a summary to the list.
