In this paper, different types of indefinite pronouns and adverbs that can occur in negative sentences in the Uralic languages will be described and discussed against a wider typological background. It will be shown that Uralic languages display the typological default strategy as to the interaction with sentential negation – Uralic indefinite pronouns and adverbs in negative contexts always require the presence of sentential negation – but do not show unity as to the type of indefinite used in negation. Four different types will be distinguished: neutral indefinites, negative polarity indefinites, and two types of negative indefinites: morphologically non-negative ones and morphologically negative ones.
