Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to investigate on NPI-licensing constraint focusing on English interrogative sentences and clarify their behavior within the formalism of HPSG. The Polarity Operator in questions and imperatives will be examined to clarify their syntactic and semantic properties. In this paper, Tonhauser (2001), most of which I basically agree to, will be modified to have a stronger power incorporating all relevant NPI-licensing phenomena into one single principle - (non)veridicality.
