A growing number of philosophers of logic have suggested that logic is best analyzed in terms of acceptance and rejection. In several influential papers, it has been proposed that we understand acceptance in terms of answering a yes-or-no question with `yes’ and understand rejection in terms of answering a yes-or-no question `no’. In this talk I will examine question-answer setups of this sort very generally, and use them to examine what sorts of negations can be endorsed by a deflationist about negation.
