Meeting Description:

This workshop aims to bring together scholars who are working on the formal expression of negation in Germanic (including standard and non-standard varieties). The workshop is organized within the research project The Syntax of Negations in Swedish, a collaboration between the universities of Gothenburg, Stockholm and Uppsala.

We welcome studies that deal with issues related to the morphology, syntax, semantics or pragmatics of negation from a synchronic or diachronic perspective. Questions that may be addressed include, but are not limited to:

- The distribution of negative concord in standard vs. non-standard varieties of Germanic
- The interaction between the morphology of negation and syntactic distribution
- Restrictions on stacking of negative elements
- Relationship to tense, aspect, modality
- Register-linked variation

Each presentation is given approximately 30 minutes (20+10).

Keynote speakers:
Ă–sten Dahl, Stockholm University
Anne Breitbarth, Ghent University
