Sentential Negation in Standard Arabic

Mahmoud Kanakri


Negation is a challenging topic in all natural languages, one of which is Arabic. What is more challenging is sentential negation in Arabic. The crux of this paper stems from where the real location of the negative particle is and how it is fronted to have a wide scope in the sentence. The paper draws its line of argument from the Minimalist Program of Chomsky (1995). It provides support for the assumption of what is known in syntax as the little verb.
