- Во многих языках двойное отрицание означает утверждение. Но нет такого языка, в котором двойное утверждение означало бы отрицание.

Голос с задней парты:

In Bulgarian -" двойное положительное отрицание" Oct 25, 2002

Of course, such grammar term doesn\'t exist, but the construction is widespread in practice.

\"Да, да...\" - with the relevant intonation, of course icon_smile.gif

А как же! Вот только галоши надену... icon_smile.gif
