Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for advanced courses on negation, polarity licensing, and the syntax-semantics interface. One of the main claims of the text is that its three topics are closely related. Arrangement is in three sections addressing the general problem of collocation, specific lexical items showing collocational behavior, and the argument that the formal apparatus used to describe and explain the behavior of polarity items is also applicable to and useful to describe and explain other phenomena in natural language. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
