Wiki Version:
I show that a syntactic approach to negative concord can be given in terms of downward Agree. This is in contrast to much recent literature that has argued that a syntactic approach to NC requires Upward Agree (whether this is taken as a feature or a bug!). Adopting an interaction/satisfaction approach, the core idea is that NC in a language like Italian results from an insatiable probe on Neg that interacts with n-words. N-word morphology is a result of Agree with such a probe. I show that this system allows for a natural account of various NC systems, including those of French and Greek.
