件名: [Lingtyp] Negation marks adverbial clauses
I hope you have started a happy new year.
In the corpus of one of my students in Hamedani Persian (a variety spoken in Hamedan, west of Iran), we have found some adverbial clauses in which the verb is marked by negative prefix, but it does not mean negative. These adverbial clauses mark Time (meaning 'as soon as') and Reason, or both at the same time. Some examples:
1. i ke kur na-šod, man diye ruz-e xoš na-didam
he that blind NEG-become, I anymore day-EZ happy NEG-see-1SG
As soon as he got blind, I had no good times.
2. das ke ne-mi-keš-i ru harči, xāk-e
hand that NEG-IND-touch-2SG over everything, dirty-BE.3SG
As you touch everything, it is dirty.
I wonder if there is any other language in which the adverbial clause is negative in form but not in meaning. I searched to find some evidence or some sources which mention this, but I was not successful. I appreciate your comments.
