Do you use double negatives? Sometimes I do without realizing it. Here’s a fun trick about double negatives you may not have known:

The Double Negative

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his class one day.

“In English,” he said, “A double negative forms a positive.”

“In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative.”

“However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative.”

A voice from the back of the room piped up, “Yeah, right.”

Wow. He sure fooled him!
