For Query: Linguist 11.588

We would like to thank the following people for responding to our query about 
references on Modern Greek negative particles:

- Laurence Horn, who suggested the article Horn, Laurence R. (1991) "Duplex 
 negatio affirmat...: The Economy of Double Negation", in Papers from the 
 Parasession on Negation, CLS 27, Part 2, 78-106. Chicago: CLS. 
- Dimitra Kati, who pointed out that constructions like o mi polemos (the not 
 war) are probably loans from English and suggested two articles, one of her 
 own (as yet unpublished), dealing with mi/min negation in early child 
 language, and one by R. D Janda & B. Joseph "The Modern Greek negator 
 mi(n)(-) as a morphological constellation". Both are to be found in the 
 proceedings of the 4th (1999) and 3rd (1997) International Conference on 
 the Greek Linguistics respectively.
