Beyond 'Any' and 'Ever'

New Explorations in Negative Polarity Sensitivity

Edited by: Eva Csipak, Regine Eckardt, Mingya Liu, and Manfred Sailer
The grammar of negative polarity items is one of the challengesfor linguistic theory. NPIs cross-cut all traditional categories in grammar and semantics, yet their distribution is by no means arbitrary. Theories of NPI licensing have been proposed in terms of syntax, semantics, and pragmatics - each with its own merits and problems. The volume comprises state-of-the-art studies and suggests an interpolation approach to NPI licensing.
