Module assignments


In this seminar we will investigate the form, meaning and function of negation across varieties of English. We will look at how negation is expressed and which functions it fulfils in spoken and written discourse as well as in various standard and non-standard varieties of English (e.g. AmE vs. BrE, British dialects, AAVE etc.). Our focus will be on different types of negation, including clausal negation, subclausal negation, semantic negation and pragmatic negation.
