Negative Sentences in the Languages of Europe: A Typological Approach

Front Cover
Walter de Gruyter, Oct 25, 2012 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 287 pages
The series is a platform for contributions of all kinds to this rapidly developing field. General problems are studied from the perspective of individual languages, language families, language groups, or language samples. Conclusions are the result of a deepened study of empirical data. Special emphasis is given to little-known languages, whose analysis may shed new light on long-standing problems in general linguistics.
