Linguistics lecture

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his class one day.

"In English, he said, "a double negative forms a positive."

He continued: "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."
