About the Book

This book provides a detailed exploration of negation and negative polarity phenomena and their implications for linguistic theory. Including new, specially commissioned work from some of the leading European, American, and Japanese scholars, Negation and Polarity covers all of the main approaches to this subject--syntactic, pragmatic, semantic, and cognitive--in a variety of language contexts.

About the Author:
Laurence R. Horn is Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Linguistics at Yale University. His primary research interest is located within the union (if not the intersection) of traditional logic, neo-Gricean pragmatic theory, lexical semantics, and the analysis of negation.
