This book presents research on a wide range of negative prefixes arguing that (i) each affix has multiple interpretations, prototypical and peripheral; (ii) the set of interpretations of an affix are partially overlapping with the interpretations of other affixes; (iii) due to a competition between affixes, a decision to use one rather than another always affects interpretation. This book can be useful and inspiring for readers working on the topic… Linguist List, June 2010
