Ten things I don't like about you ... (in days)

Abstract


In this squib, we show that there is indeed a class of predicates which give rise to neg- raising inferences but do not license strong NPIs: namely, factive emotives like ‘appreciate’, ‘be glad’, ‘be happy’, and ‘like’. This is a striking fact which we believe provides support for the Gajewski-Chierchia theory. We also point to some challenges this class of predicates poses for traditional approaches to neg-raising, and make a suggestion about how these might be overcome in a semantic approach to neg-raising.2
