Meaning: not (prohibitive particle)
Russian meaning: не (запретительная частица)
Chuvash: an
Comments: Егоров 26-27, Федотов 1, 43-45. An isolated Chuv. form, but probably archaic (cf. the external evidence). Cf. also Karakh. (MK Oghuz) 'an exclamation meaning "no"' (see EDT 165) - but it is a hapax, occurs only within a reduplication aŋ, does not regularly correspond to Chuv. an and may be just onomatopoeic.
