Example text

B. * Any one is not likely to come. On the other hand, since in Hindi there is plausible evidence that the negative nahiiN ends up on the head of IP/TP as we assumed above (see Dwivedi 1991; Kumar 2003, 2004), one could argue that the NPI in Spec IP is licensed in a Spec-head relation with the negative in I. This follows arguments that NPIs can be licensed in a Spec-head configuration (Hageman 1995; Benmamoun 1996)4,5. In the following section, I discuss the syntax of the two types of NPIs based on the idea that they are licensed overtly and that both the types of NPIs are licensed under on licensing condition.

Long Distance Licensing of NPIs The following data presents the systematic contrast between the two types of NPIs. Type I NPIs are not licensed long distance whereas type II NPIs can be licensed long distance. Type I NPIs in (23) such as ek phuuTii kauRii ‘a red cent’, Tas se mas honaa ‘budge an inch’, and hargiz ‘at all’ obligatorily require a local licensor. ’ ko DAT 33 Two Types of NPIs in Hindi b. ’ c. ’ On the other hand, type II NPIs such as koii bhii (any) and kisii bhii6 (any) allow long distance licensors as in sentences (24) below.

CP [NEG] COMP [IP … kisii bhii (NPI) …]] In (27a) and (27b) the negated verb kahaa selects a negative COMP. Thus, we can say that the NPIs in (24) are licensed by the negative COMP. However, Laka’s assumption of a negative COMP does not work for type I NPIs as in (23). The examples in (28) illustrate this. (28) a. *… nahiiN (NEG) V… [CP [NEG] COMP [IP … ek phuuTi kauRii (NPI) …]] b. * … nahiiN (NEG) V… [CP [NEG] COMP [IP … hargiz (NPI) …]] All the examples in (23) have a negated verb in the matrix clause.
