If No Media Were Allowed inside the Venue, Was Anybody Allowed?

Zahra Sarabi, Eduardo Blanco


Abstract
This paper presents a framework to understand negation in positive terms. Specifically, we extract positive meaning from negation when the negation cue syntactically modifies a noun or adjective. Our approach is grounded on generating potential positive interpretations automatically, and then scoring them. Experimental results show that interpretations scored high can be reliably identified.
