Title: Negation and Clausal Structure: A Comparative Study of Romance Languages
Written By: Raffaella Zanuttini
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax
Description:

Every human language has some syntactic means of distinguishing a negative from a non-negative sentence; in other words, every speaker's syntactic competence provides a means to express sentential negation. This ability, however, may be expressed in different ways, as shown by the fact that individual languages employ different syntactic strategies for the expression of the same semantic function of negating a sentence.
