Adjectival Negation and the Comprehension of Multiply Negated Sentences
Sherman, Mark A.
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 15, 2, 143-157, Apr 76

Difficulty of comprehension was measured by the speed and accuracy with which subjects judged the semantic reasonableness of sentences. Marked and negatively prefixed adjectives were a particular focus of the study. (Author/RM)
