DeLancey (2012: 539) draws attention to the morpheme lõ in Hare as the touchstone of a putative 'mirative' grammatical category. An examination of his examples of lõ reveals very weak evidence for establishing 'mirative' as a category in this language let alone promoting Hare lõ as the touchstone for this category cross-linguistically. The case for lõ as a mirative marker has yet to be made convincingly. In the meantime, it is more prudent to understand lõ as either a direct evidential marker or a mediative marker.
