Message 2: Clausal Negation vs. VP-Negation

Subject: Clausal Negation vs. VP-Negation

Dear all,

I'm looking for any kind of test to tell apart clausal negation from
VP-negation. The tests should be useful for languages other than English,
lacking morphological ('do' insertion) or word order (...not to leave /
not leave) cues. Scope, movement, ellipsis, whatever - any distinguishing
test is welcome (as well as relevant references).
