About this product
- DescriptionDoris Penka delivers a unified analysis of the semantics and syntax of negative indefinites - as in the expressions nobody, nothing, never and nowhere - and their counterparts in other languages. Contrary to standard assumptions, the author argues that these expressions are not inherently negative and are only licensed by a covert negation.
- Author BiographyDoris Penka is a postdoctoral researcher in the Zukunftskolleg and the Department of Linguistics at the University of Konstanz. Her research focuses on the syntax-semantics interface, in particular the interaction of negation and quantification. Negative Indefinites is a reworking of her 2007 dissertation.
