Quisquam (normally Subst., as ullus is normally Adjective) is not confined to Negative1 and Interrogative Sentences, for we find also, e.g., Cas. 677tibi infesta solist plus quam cuiquam” (cf. Cas. 128). Quispiam, only found in Singular in the Comedians, is not used by Plautus (but by Ter. Eun. 873) in direct statements, but only in questions or after si, ubi, nisi, ne, etc. The same is true of the Adverb uspiam.
