Keywords:negative concord, n-words, Catalan, minimizers, emphatic particles, grammaticalization
In the article, we made a synopsis of the advances in the investigation upon the Negative Concord structure (concordança negativa) in Catalan hitherto made. Speaking of Romance languages, an optional negation of the predicate after an n-word is a trait characteristic only of the Pyrenean continuum. The source of the dialectal diversity in the Negative Concord paradigm is to be searched for – primarily in language contact; historical and social factors have also been considered. A special insight has been offered on the ample class of minimizers, just like n-words subject to the processes of desemanticization and grammaticalization as emphatic particles.
