This book contains eleven carefully selected papers, all discussing
negative constructions in English. The aim of this volume is to bring
together empirical research into the development of English negation and
analyses of syntactic variations in Present-day English negation. The first
part "Aspects of Negation in the History of English" includes six
contributions, which focus on the usages of the negative adverbs ne and
not, the decline of negative concord, and the development of the auxiliary
do in negation. Most of the themes discussed here are then linked to the
second part "Aspects of Negation in Present-day English". Especially, the
issue of negative concord is repeatedly explored by three of the five
papers in this part, one related to British English dialects in general,
another to Tyneside English, and the other to African American Vernacular
English. This book uniquely highlights the importance of continuity from
Old English to Present-day English, while, in its introduction, it provides
a useful detailed survey of previous studies on English negation.
