In contrast, in both Tundra Enets as well as Nganasan, the etymologically related verb shows indeed the standard negation pattern of negative auxiliaries NEG.
Concerning the encoding of such predicatives, Tundra Nenets, Forest Enets and Tundra Enets do not require a free-standing copula, neither in the aorist nor the past tense:
By contrast, the Nenets and Enets languages have cliticized the inflected copula and the copula has been dropped which has resulted in the verbal-like encoding of nominal predicates.
