Title: Negation Raising
Subtitle: Logical Form and Linguistic Variation
Written By: Vincenzo Moscati
Description:

With this book, the author explores the syntax of negative sentences,
tracing fine-grained contours of the linguistic variation and offering a
detailed cartographic representation of the distribution of negative markers.

The goal is to show the existing tension in Language between the variable
surface realization of negation and its stable logical representation. In
order to solve this tension and to unify the interpretation of negative
sentences, a mapping operation, LF-Negation Raising, is proposed.

Verbal arguments related to negation such as n-words, negative quantifiers
and negative polarity items will be also considered, in order to derive
negative concord phenomena from the inner semantics of nominal constituents.
