Abstract:It is known that natural language negative markers undergo a type of evolution called Jespersen’s Cycle. According to this cyclical model, the initial (preverbal) negative marker is gradually weakened, then reinforced by additional postverbal markers, and eventually replaced by them. This paper characterizes Romanian negation from the perspective of Jespersen’s Cycle and aims to provide answers to the following questions: in which stage of Jespersen’s cycle is Romanian? Is there any connection between Jespersen’s Cycle and the negative concord? What is the degree of grammaticalization of the Romanian minimizers?
Language: Romanian
