Query:   I am doing a comparative study of negation in non-verbal and existential
sentences in Slavic languages. I have perused a number of grammars but
haven’t been able to get all the data I need. My dataset is particularly
bad for Belorus'; the datasets for Czech, Slovak, Sorbian and Cassubian are
not as bad but have big holes in them too.

I have set up wiki at

There I list the sentences I need help with as well other issues pertinent
to some of the South Slavic languages.

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated. I will post a summary if
there is interest.

Thank you in advance for all the help.

Best wishes,
