The purpose of this paper is to show that the toritateshi (focus particles) nado, nanka, and made, which denote a negative or unexpected evaluation, have two usages: one that requires an overt negative morpheme and one that does not. This phenomenon can be explained naturally by assuming that, syntactically, the former usage has a [-Lexical] feature and the latter a [+Lexical] feature. Furthermore, these focus particles have a particular syntactic correlation. If the contrastive marker wa is adjoined to nado, nanka, or made with the [+Lexical] feature, the feature reverses polarity from [+Lexical] to [-Lexical], and the particles then require an overt negative morpheme.
