Next: Future Negative. Up: Habitual Negative. Previous: Past Habitual Negative.

Alternative form of Negative Past Habitual.

Another form, contrasting with that in § 6.121, and used perhaps in different dialects, is a form where the modal kuudaadu `should not, must not' is affixed to the verb and embedded before nnu irund + PNG .

This form indicates a slightly higher degree of intention, and an emphatic ee is suffixed to padattukku `to the movies' to signal this.
