Poletto, C. (2017). ‘Negative doubling: in favor of a big NegP analysis’ in S. Cruschina, K. Hartmann and E.-M. Remberger (eds.), Studies on Negation: Syntax, Semantics, and Variation [Wiener Arbeiten zur Linguistik]. Göttingen: V&R unipress/Vienna University Press, 81-104. Abstract: In this work I reformulate Pollock's (1989) analysis of French discontinuous negation and argue in favor of a cartographic approach to the category called NegP. I propose that it is a complex category which contains at least four different projections and will show that the various types of discontinuous negation found in several Northern Italian dialects can be analyzed in the same way as DP doubling has been analyzed by Kayne (1975) and Belletti (2005), i.e. as independent movement of structural portions of an originally unitary constituent containing all negative markers first merged inside the VP.
