This is the first full-length study of sentential negation phenomena in French. Paul Rowlett assesses, from a generative perspective, the respective contribution made to the expression of clausal polarity by ne, pas, and elements such as jamais and personne. His conclusions have far-reachingimplications, leading to the controversial hypothesis that, despite widespread belief, French is not a negative concord language.
Paul Rowlett is at University of Salford.
