Abstract

The research focuses on lexical, grammatical, morphemic and syntactic markers of category Negation.
Negation as an interlingua discipline, is closely connected with philosophy, logics, psychology. The totality of

markers of negation are being analyzed explicitly and implicitly. The empiric data prove that mononegation is

perspective vectors are thought over
