Sengi is acceptable too. Frommer has used it on a number of occasions.

From the wiki:

--- Quote ---Optionally, when the negative affect infix ‹äng› occurs before the vowel i, the vowel of the infix may be raised, giving ‹eng›. Thus the early example, fìskxawngìri tsap'alute sengi oe. (Wm asked this over a beer).

Kemaweyan:
Ok. But does it mean what now we have an infix <eng>? Do we need to add that to infix list? :-\ We already have there two infixes <ìyev> and <iyev> with the same meaning :)
