Title
Jespersen cycles in Kanincin : double, triple and maybe even quadruple negation
Author
Abstract
This article shows how successive Jespersen cycles lead to three and maybe even four sentential negative markers in the Bantu language Kanincin. Postverbal negative markers, which originally served to strengthen negation, are traced back to locative and possessive sources on the basis of language internal and comparative data.
