Sorry for a very general question, but it's important for me to know the alpha and omega of it! The question came to my mind looking at this.
I searched on Oxforddictionaries and landed here.
Now the question:
All the examples for negative or in questions and without negative reflect negativeness one or the other way.
Does negation only imply to the subject and never the results? I was ready for my resignation (is positive?) OVER I wasn't ready for my promotion and thus declined it! (is negative?)
My homework: I went through this but still it's not utterly clear. What if there's no subject! Can we come up with negative/positive sentences then?
For instance, *this produces no results - negative?
