We explore the interaction of sentential negation and word order in Basque using a small
experimental implemented grammar based on the Grammar Matrix (Bender et al., 2002, 2010) to test the
analyses. We find that the analysis of free word order (Fokkens, 2010) provided by the Grammar
Matrix customization system can be adapted to handle the Basque facts, and that the constructional
approach taken in that analysis supports the integration of negation.
