Since the seminal work of Klima (1964), research on Negative Polarity Items (NPIs) has basically revolved around the identification and characterization of the licensing conditions that assign grammaticality to the NPIs. Proposals for the licensing of NPIs have been made from two perspectives: whether their linguistic behavior is a syntactic or semantic in nature. Though within various theoretical backgrounds, Klima (1964); Laka (1990); Progovac (1993); Sohn (1995) all attribute the licensing conditions of NPIs to their syntactic properties. In semantically based approaches, the problem has been analyzed in terms of the downward entailment theory (Fauconnier 1975; Ladusaw 1980). Following the former line of thinking, studies on the analysis of Turkish NPIs have tended to unearth the syntactic behaviors of NPIs and their significance in the clausal structure (Zidani-Eroğlu 1997; Tosun 1998; Kelepir; 2001). However, the very lexical nature of Turkish polarity items has not been analyzed at all. In this talk, I will focus on the lexical nature of the Turkish NPIs, specifically on ‘kimse’ and its Free Choice readings.
