    Abstract: We first point out that Mandarin Chinese and English show a striking
    contrast with respect to metalinguistic negation. Simple negated sentences in
    English freely allow metalinguistic readings of the negation whereas counterpart
    sentences in Mandarin do not. The cross-linguistic difference is then derived from
    independently motivated structural representations of negation in these two
    languages interacting with a single proposed universal syntactic constraint on the
    availability of metalinguistic readings of negative sentences. We show that the
    proposed constraint also accurately distinguishes within Mandarin between
    negative sentences which prohibit metalinguistic readings, on the one hand, and
    negative sentences which allow them, on the other. In addition to accounting for
    the previously unanalyzed contrast between Mandarin and English, the analysis
    accounts for this cross-linguistic difference without resorting to language specific
    (or even typological) statements about metalinguistic negation. Cross-linguistic
    differences in this respect are claimed to follow as a consequence of independently
    motivated syntactic differences between the two languages.
