This is established on the basis of local vs. long distance licensing, the occurrence of NPIs in non-negative contexts, and the licensing of NPIs within the syntactic island.

Progovac argues that NPIs in Serbo-Croatian are anaphoric. To capture the distributional properties of Serbo-Croatian NI-NPIs and INPIs, Progovac suggests that the NI-NPIs in (29) are subject to Principle-A and that the I-NPIs as in (30) are subject to both Principle-A and Principle-B. I-NPIs obey restrictions on Principle-B at the surface structure and obey the requirements of Principle-A at LF. As the negative licensors are not clause mates with I-NPIs at surface structure, the I-NPIs move at LF to be bound within the governing category.
