Negation in English: An Essay in Game-Theoretical Semantics

Dissertation, The Florida State University (1985)

Abstract
This essay treats semantical negation from the standpoint of game-theoretical semantics. It consists of an exposition and critique of the one previous treatment of negation from this viewpoint, a formulation of negation-formation rules with special attention to the interaction of quantifier scopes and the scope of negation, and applications of this treatment to a number of problems: negation of sentences containing definite descriptions, sentences having contextually determined restrictions on quantifier domains, reciprocal quantification, negative polarity, negative raising, term negation of quantifier phrases, no, the noneffectiveness of negation in general, quantificational only, and tag questions
