Complement anaphora and negative polarity items
AbstractBased on data from German, I call attention to a so far unnoticed relationship between data on complement set anaphora and strong negative polarity items (NPI). In particular, I show that if a quantified NP can serve as antecedent of a complement set anaphor, it can also license strong NPIs. I provide a lexical decomposition analysis using Discourse Representation Theory.
