Negation modeling for German polarity classification

  • We present an approach for modeling German negation in open-domain fine grained sentiment analysis. Unlike most previous work in sentiment analysis, we assume that negation can be conveyed by many lexical units (and not only common negation words) and that different negation words have different scopes. Our approach is examined on a new dataset comprising sentences with mentions of polar expressions and various negation words. We identify different types of negation words that have the same scopes. We show that already negation modeling based on these types largely outperforms traditional negation models which assume the same scope for all negation words and which employ a window-based scope detection rather than a scope detection based on syntactic information.
