The goal of this paper is to present evidence that the long-form negative marker ani in Korean functions as a head of the functional projection NegP. The evidence mainly comes from the following two facts. First, a negative polarity item(NPI) serves as a blocker for the focus marker in sentences of long-form negation, so any element preceding an NPI cannot be focused. Second, a subject-object asymmetry arises in NPI-licensing when an NPI is contained in coordinate structures of long-form negation, the fact of which can only be explained by assuming the headness of the negator ani.
