Thepresent paper goes along the study of implicit negation in Modern English.Negation is a central means of conveying information in communication. As we know, negation can be expressed both explicitly and implicitly. Explicit means of expressing negation embrace negative words, prefixes, suffixes, etc. The expression of negation by affixes or negative words is usually explicit [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]and does not need additional semantic analysis, i.e. the negativity of such sentences is usually obvious. Whereas, implicit means of expressing negation do not contain formal markers of negativity; the negative meaning is expressed implicitly in them. The meaning of implicitly negative utterances is usually inferred from the context.For “revealing” the negativity of such sentences we have to analyze and assume their meaning.
