[Xmca-l] nunhappy, nenohappy etc



Just wondering whether there is a prefix in Russian for double negatives
allowing for the inclusion of the imbetween cases, such as "she was not
unhappy" (meaning she might have been either happy or neither happy or
unhappy).

It seems to me that this is quite a frequent occurrence in reading Russian
psychologists.  Perhaps we should have a specific prefix for it, to match
its directness... she was nunhappy... she was nenohappy...
