Linguistics




A  linguistics professor was lecturing his class the other day. “In
English,” he said, “a double negative forms a positive. However, in some
languages, such as Russian, a double negative remains a negative. … But
there isn’t a single language, not one, in which a double positive can
express a negative.” A voice from the back of the room piped up, “Yeah,
right.”
