NPIs, Intervention, and Collectivity. Buccola, B. and Crni ̌c, L.
abstract   bibtex   
Negative polarity items are subject to so-called intervention e ects (Linebarger, , ); speci cally, they are unacceptable in the immediate scope of certain non-downwardentailing operators, even if they occur in the scope of a (higher) downward-entailing operator. By studying the behavior of any in con gurations with collective predicates, we provide new empirical arguments that the descriptive condition concerning intervention must be stated with reference to the content of the clausal constituents in which NPIs may occur (cf. Chierchia, , ). We conclude by discussing how the condition ts in with some recent theories of intervention (esp. Guerzoni, ; Chierchia, ).
