Abstract: We study the axion monodromy inflation with a non-perturbatively generated sinusoidal term. The potential form is a mixture between the natural inflation and the axion monodromy inflation potentials. The sinusoidal term is subdominant in the potential, but leaves significant effects on the resultant fluctuation generated during inflation. A larger tensor-to-scalar ratio can be obtained in our model. We study two scenarios, the single inflation scenario and the double inflation scenario. In the first scenario, the axion monodromy inflation with a sufficient number of e-folds generates a larger tensor-to-scalar ratio of about 0.1-0.15 but also a tiny running of the spectral index. In the second scenario of double inflation, axion monodromy inflation is its first stage, and we assume another inflation follows. In this case, our model can realize a larger tensor-to-scalar ratio and a large negative running of the spectral index simultaneously.
