Negativity, Negation, Trans-disciplinary approach: Review of a philosophical conceptualisation, psychoanalytic theorisation and linguistic application.

The aim of this study is to bring forth a linguistic invariant to the notion of negation through a cross study between philosophy, psychoanalysis and linguistics. The negation is a multifaceted linguistic phenomenon. As such it encompasses many levels of analysis such as prosody, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. Moreover it is not always explicitly mentioned. This explains the difficulty to define such an invariant.
