Perspectives on Negation and Polarity Items contains a selection of
papers on the semantics, acquisition and licensing behavior of
negation. Negation, being one of the prevalent features of any human
language, has many facets of interest to linguists, psychologists and
philosophers alike. In recent years, much attention has been paid to
the complicated distributional patterns of polarity items.

Many of the contributions in this volume are devoted to the study of
one or more of these items in langages such as English (Laurence Horn,
Anita Mittwoch, Chris Kennedy), Dutch (Jack Hoeksema and Hotze
Rullmann, Henny Klein, Gertjan Postma), German (Gabriel Falkenberg),
Hindi (Utpal Lahiri) and Greek (Anastasia Giannakidou). In addition,
some general issues surrounding negation are addressed, such as the
characterization of the notion "strength of negation" (Jay Atlas), the
problem of NEG-raising (Lucia Tovena), the interaction of negation and
modality (Johan van der Auwera) and the acquisition of negation
(Kenneth Drozd).
