- Double negation; negative concord; interpretation
Double negation and negative concord statements content negative markers and express exceptions or unusual occurrences. The purpose of this article is to investigate the process of interpretation for hearers to be able to interpret sentences into either negative concord or double negation sentences. A literature review was used as the method of this article. Two experiments were reviewed in this article. It is implied that the preference of negative concord or double negative interpretations is a bias toward which negation style is acquired first during the linguistic developmental phase of children. It is also implied that redundant information, such as negative concord sentences, is more easily processed than more complex sentences such as double negation sentences. However, evidence state that standard English permits no use of negative concord.
