Propriétés Sémantiques Des Verbes Promoteurs De La Négation En Français
This paper describes some semantic properties of verbs which admit Neg-raising proceeding from their semantic representation (= semantic decompositions). One new concept relevant to Neg-raising verbs is proposed: negation semantic scope (NSS; the scope of negation in the semantic representation of a verb). Usually, the NSS of a V extends to the whole assertive part of its semantic representation (standard NSS). However, for some verbs (French approuver, conseiller, permettre, etc.) the NSS does not include the central predicate of the assertive part of their semantic representation (special NSS). The special NSS is manifested by various pragmatic, semantic, and syntactic properties of the construction "negative particle + V with special NSS". The special NSS must be lexically specified for the verb in the dictionary.
