Negation and Polarity in the Greek, Gothic, Classical Armenian, and Old Church Slavic Gospels

  • Jared S. Klein

Abstract

This paper presents a preliminary analysis of the comparative syntax of negation in the Greek gospels as well as the Gothic, Classical Armenian, and Old Church Slavic versions translated from the Greek. In addition to the issue of negation per se, I will examine the employment of negative polarity items that occur in the various clause types we will investigate.
