Mon ra' and nong: assertive particles?


Jenny, Mathias (2006). Mon ra' and nong: assertive particles? Journal of Mon-Khmer Studies, 36:21-38.

Abstract

The two particles raʔ and noŋ in Mon deserve some more detailed investigation. Earlier descriptions of Mon mostly analyse the two as assertive markers, usually assigning a past/present notion to raʔ and future or “limited assertion” to noŋ. Of the two, raʔ occurs more frequently, as it can stand in virtually any sentence in clause (or phrase) final position.
