This analysis is extended to languages that do not exhibit negative concord. Crucial evidence comes from the fact that negative indefinites give rise to split readings, in which another (modal etc.) operator takes scope in between the negative and the indefinite meaning component. Split readings also provide an argument against implementing the licensing conditions for negative indefinites in certain ways proposed in the literature, in particular against the NEG-criterion of Haegeman and Zanuttini 1991, but also against the analyses of Ladusaw 1992 and Kratzer 2005.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Penka, Doris</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Proceedings of the Sixteenth Amsterdam Colloquium ; December 17-19, 2007 / Maria Aloni, Paul Dekker and Floris Roelofsen (eds.). - Amsterdam : ILLC / Department of Philosophy, University of Amsterdam, 2007. - S. 19-22. - ISBN 978-90-812643-1-0</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
