Óskar ániyë: radical + e (like volle /vOl/: to want), You're kidding!? Isn't that way arcane? I mean, wasn't that 'volére' back in VL? Does 'esse' exist at all in Roumant? When I read this I was a little shocked as well. Why would Roumant keep a form such as this seemingly without any other analogous forms. And anyway how did it become volle when the Latin was velle? I really like the form but it just doesn't seem at all plausible. Negation sounds interesting to me. You could tell me BTW, about why 'non' doesn't feature as a negating adverb in French, but only 'ne', the archaic Indo-European word. Actually from what I've read "ne" isn't direclty from the Indo-European (an imposibility in fact), but instead its just a weakened form of "non" which came about in the Gallo-Romance period. The Latin "non" became Gallo-Romance "non" then Early Old French "nen" then became "ne" with loss of the nasalization in an unstressed syllable, an isolated change to be sure, but probably a real change none the less.
