The verbs sema (to exist) and mau (to want) are not negated by ua, which would be ungrammatical. Instead, one uses the verbs malo (to not exist) and hodu (to not want), respectively.

From Proto-Hmong-Mien *ʔəjH (to do, work).[1]

This etymology is missing or incomplete. Please add to it, or discuss it at the Etymology scriptorium.
Particularly: “Possiblity of a Sinitic borrowing for the Proto-HM term? Mandarin (zuò, to do, perform) or Mandarin (id) seem like good candidates. The correspondence of the *ʔs in the Old Chinese terms with the ʔ in the HM proto-form would have to be established, as well as the collapsing of gs to H.”
