This text traces the history of negation in English from Old and
Middle English through to Modern Standard English and other varieties
of English. It discusses the developments of negation in the early
centuries, which involves looking at the problems of the phonology,
morphology, syntax and semantics of Old and Middle English. There is
also a chapter on negation in British dialects, non-standard forms,
other native forms such as Black English, and non-native varieties
such as English-based pidgins and Creoles.
