The correct modelling of negation in a computational grammar is essential in order for the grammar to be useful in natural language processing, and controlled language development and applications. An important and unique feature of Afrikaans is how it deals with negation. We present an exposition of a substantial fragment of negation in Afrikaans and discuss our implementation thereof in GF. Examples are given as illustration of the relevant issues. The paper is concluded with a discussion of results and plans for future work.
