Description

Every language has some syntactic means of distinguishing a negative from a non-negative sentence. This ability may be expressed in different ways. Zanuttini's goal is to characterize the range of such variation by comparing the variations exhibited by one language family, the romance languages, and by reducing the differences to a constrained set of choices available to the particular grammars of these languages.show more
