Isi artikelThis paper addresses the two interpretations that a combination of negative indefinites can get in concord languages like French: a concord reading, which amounts to a single negation, and a double negation reading. We develop an analysis within a polyadic framework, where a sequence of negative indefinites can be interpreted as an iteration of quantifiers or via resumption. The first option leads to a scopal relation, interpreted as double negation. The second option leads to the construction of a polyadic negative quantifier corresponding to the concord reading. Given that sentential negation participates in negative concord, we develop an extension of the polyadic approach which can deal with non-variable binding operators, treating the contribution of negation in a concord context as semantically empty. Our semantic analysis, incorporated into a grammatical analysis formulated in HPSG, crucially relies on the assumption that quantifiers can be combined in more than one way upon retrieval from the quantifier store. We also consider cross linguistic variation regarding the participation of sentential negation in negative concord.
