Cross-linguistic frequencies and correlations are also examined. It is argued that functional motivations of the different types of negation can be found in the functional differences between…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
This book is the first cross-linguistic study of clausal negation based on an extensive and systematic language sample. It examines the ways in which negation is expressed in the languages of the world from a new perspective and proposes a typological classification based on the structural differences between affirmative and negative clauses, the main types being symmetric and asymmetric negation. Cross-linguistic frequencies and correlations are also examined. It is argued that functional motivations of the different types of negation can be found in the functional differences between affirmation and negation. The book is of interest to language typologists, descriptive linguists and to all linguists interested in negation.

Rezensionen
"The volume under review is obligatory reading for anyone interested in language typology and in recent trends in the field."
Angela Bartens in: SKY Journal of Linguistics 20/2007

"This innovative and important study shows that the ways languages negate statements is as important -- and diverse -- as the ways they make statements."
Nathan Bierma in: Chicago Tribune, Dezember 2006
