Abstract

This is the first of two volumes setting out the main findings of the project The development of negation in the languages of Europe. The second volume will examine the processes and mechanisms by which diachronic developments in negation take place and how these can inform more general theories of linguistic change. This first volume is more narrowly empirical in scope, aiming to document in detail the recurring patterns of development in the expression of negation and indefinites as they are found in the languages of Europe and the Mediterranean.
