Hey Quenya wranglers! Is there a negative existence-copula in Quenya? I know that there is "ea" for a positive copula, but i'm unsure about the negative version.

It seems that Tolkien used the negative particles ( or ú) as a negative copula. For example:

+Fiona Jallings With na and ëa separating and ëa as a part of normal verbal system, I see no reason against lá ëa.
