 "There are non-standard dialects of Breton in which the pattern of verb-inflection in negative clauses is the same 
 as that observed in affirmative clauses; for such dialects, (i) is acceptable and (ii) inacceptable.
 Trépos Grammaire bretonne (n.d. [1968]) is apparently based on a non-standard dialect of this sort; 
 cf. the example Ar selaouerien ne gleve netra, 'The auditors didn't hear anything' (p.266), 
 in which 'gleve' is in its analytic form [3SG]."

(i) ar vugale ne lenn ket levrioù.
the children Ptc read not books
'The children don't read books.'

(ii) * ar vugale ne lennont ket levrioù.
'The children don't read books.'
