Abstract

This paper investigates co-occurrence restrictions between Negative Polarity Items (NPIs) and quantificational elements in Sason Arabic. Based on interpretational restrictions and scope properties of such structures, I show that the Immediate Scope Constraint applying at the level of LF is not enough to account for these co-occurence restrictions in Sason Arabic, and that a PF constraint against homophonous sequences and a locality restriction on Quantifier Raising are required in addition.
