Message 1: New and Recent Titles in Syntax & Morphology

Subject: New and Recent Titles in Syntax & Morphology

Paul Rowlett, University of Salford

This is the first full-length study of sentential negation phenomena
in French. Paul Rowlett assesses, from a generative perspective, the
respective contribution made to the expression of clausal polarity by
ne, pas, and elements such as jamais and personne. His conclusions
have far-reaching implications, leading to the controversial
hypothesis that, despite widespread belief, French is not a negative
concord language.
