dc.description.abstractIn Hindi certain word ordering possibilities that are grammatical in non-negative sentences become ungrammatical in the presence of sentential negation. In movement-based accounts of such negation-induced word order constraints, the restricted word order has been argued to provide evidence that negative polarity items (NPIs) in Hindi are licensed at LF and s-structure while in English NPI licensing occurs at s-structure. I argue for a non-movement-based, uniformly monostratal (s-structure) account for the word order facts in Hindi, cast in the multimodal categorial grammar framework. The NPI licensing issue is dealt with independently following Dowty's monotonicity marking analysis.en_US
