This work originates from the need to develop an integrated dynamic model of negation in discourse that is adequate for understanding the role of negation in an extensive and complex piece of discourse. Most work on negation is strongly influenced by traditional philosopical problems, but little work has been carried out in the area of discourse. Approaches to negation within the functional-cognitive tradition tend to focus of specific agents of negation, its function as a speech act, or its cognitive model. Few attempts have been made to propose an integrated discourse model, studies of negation with few exceptions tend to be limited to brief selections or isolated sentences. This book fills the gap in studies of negation in discourse by providing an up-to-date critical review of the state of the art in negation and by proposing a model that brings together the semantic, cognitve, and pragmatic features of negation, which are crucial for an understanding of its role in disourse.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."Hidalgo downing has done an admirable jon of showing how an analysis of an important aspect of discourse can be carried out with respect to a complex real text. Hildalgo Downing's book allows for both a deeper understanding of negation and Catch-22. One canhope that other researchers will take up the challenge of applying their theories to the demands of authors' most ingenious works."-Contemporary Psychology APA Review of Books
