Abstract:

Why do grammars change? The cycle of negation proposed by Jespersen is 
crucially linked to the status of items and phrases. The definition of criteria 
establishing when a polarity item becomes a negative element, and the 
identification of the role of phrases for the evolution of negation are the two 
objectives pursued by the contributions to this volume.

The contributions look at the emergence of negative items, and their relation 
within a given sentence, with particular reference to English and French. The 
comparative perspective supports the documentation of the fine-grained 
steps that shed light on the factors that (i) determine change and those that 
(ii) accompany actuation, which are considered through a dialogue between 
functionalist and formalist approaches. By looking at the place of negation in 
the architecture of the sentence, they take up the debate as to the relevance 
of phrasal projections and consider the role of features. Focusing on the 
make-up of individual items makes it possible to re-conceptualise the 
Jespersen cycle as the apparent result of the documented evolution patterns 
of individual (series of) items. This novel perspective is solidly grounded on 
an extensive use of the complete, up to date bibliography, and will contribute 
to shape future research.
