The syn­tax of sur­prise: exple­tive nega­tion and the left periph­ery
BuchcoverNega­tion is a uni­ver­sal syn­tac­tic phe­nom­e­non only employed in human lan­guages. Peo­ple use neg­a­tive sen­tences in every­day con­ver­sa­tions, and they dis­play com­plex seman­tic and syn­tac­tic prop­er­ties when doing so. Cru­cial­ly, some lan­guages employ neg­a­tive sen­tences to assert affir­ma­tive and sur­prise propo­si­tions. A clear exam­ple of this is offered by Ital­ian, as in: ‘E non (not) mi è sce­sa dal treno Maria?!’ (‘Maria got off the train!’). This spe­cial type of nega­tion is called sur­prise nega­tion, and it belongs to the class of exple­tive nega­tion. This book sheds light on this puz­zling phe­nom­e­non, by means of a the­o­ret­i­cal analy­sis and an exper­i­men­tal study. It explores the con­texts, main­ly syn­tac­tic, in which nega­tion receives its exple­tive inter­pre­ta­tion, and con­sid­ers whether exple­tive nega­tion is gram­mat­i­cal­ly dis­tinct from stan­dard nega­tion.

The Rout­ledge Com­pan­ion to Gen­der and Sex­u­al­i­ty in Com­ic Book Stud­ies
BuchcoverThe Rout­ledge Com­pan­ion to Gen­der and Sex­u­al­i­ty in Com­ic Book Stud­ies is a com­pre­hen­sive, glob­al, and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary exam­i­na­tion of the essen­tial rela­tion­ship between Gen­der, Sex­u­al­i­ty, Comics, and Graph­ic Nov­els.
A diverse range of inter­na­tion­al and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary schol­ars take a clos­er look at how gen­der and sex­u­al­i­ty have been essen­tial in the evo­lu­tion of comics, and how gen­der and sex­u­al­i­ty in comics demand that we re-frame and re-view comics his­to­ry. Chap­ters cov­er a wide array of inter­sec­tion­al top­ics includ­ing Queer Under­ground and Alter­na­tive comics, Fem­i­nist Auto­bi­og­ra­phy, re-draw­ing dis­abil­i­ty, Lati­na tes­ti­mo­ny, and re-eval­u­at­ing the crit­i­cal white­ness and mas­culin­i­ty of super­heroes in this first tru­ly glob­al ref­er­ence text to gen­der and sex­u­al­i­ty in comics.
Comics have always been an impor­tant place for the rad­i­cal explo­ration of fem­i­nist and non-bina­ry sex­u­al­i­ties and iden­ti­ties, and the growth of non-nor­ma­tive com­ic book tra­di­tions as a field of inquiry makes this an essen­tial text for upper-lev­el under­grad­u­ates, post­grad­u­ates, and researchers study­ing Comics Stud­ies, Women’s and Gen­der Stud­ies, Lit­er­ary Stud­ies, and Cul­tur­al Stud­ies.
