    negation - WordReference English dictionary, questions, discussion and forums. All Free. Full Description: "This book is concerned with cross-linguistic contrast of major grammatical categories in English and Chinese, two most important yet genetically different world languages. This genetic difference has resulted in many subsidiary differences that are, among other things, related to grammar.

    Especially, the issue of negative concord is repeatedly explored by three of the five papers in this part, one related to British English dialects in general, another to Tyneside English, and the other to African American Vernacular English. This book uniquely highlights the importance of continuity from Old English to Present-day English.   As Michael Alvis explained very well, in Spanish not only the double negation is preferred to the simple one, but it is even compulsory in some cases, such as “No tengo nada” (literally, “I don’t have nothing”), meaning “I have nothing”, or “I don.

Negation in the History of English Book Summary: The future of English linguistics as envisaged by the editors of Topics in English Linguistics lies in empirical studies which integrate work in English linguistics into general and theoretical linguistics on the one hand, and comparative linguistics on the other. The TiEL series features volumes that present interesting new data and analyses.
