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. 5. Syntax of the two types of NPIs In the previous section we find that NPIs are licensed overly. I extend the argument that both types of NPIs are licensed under the same licensing condition.

Although on the surface it appears that there is an adjacency requirement between the sentential negation and the verb, negation is outside VP in the functional domain. The evidence comes from the order of words in Hindi. Consider the following examples. Two Types of NPIs in Hindi 25 (13) a. ’ b. ’ The example in (13b) clearly shows that the NEG is certainly not in the spec position. If we assume NEG to be in the spec position, we have to stipulate a movement that puts every thing from the left of NEG in (13a) to the right of NEG as in (13b).

22) a. * Any one was not arrested. 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.
