Лекция в лингвистическом ВУЗе.


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

Голос с задней парты:

- Ага! Щазззз!

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

двойное согласие в качестве отрицания :-) Oct 28, 2002

Точнее, полуторное условное согласие icon_smile.gif :

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

Вот сейчас все брошу... Oct 29, 2002

или как в известном анекдоте, где мальчик просит папу, который пьет пиво и смотрит ТВ, починить велосипед:

- Вот сейчас все брошу и стану тебе велосипед чинить! icon_smile.gif
