The main purpose of this study is the formalization of the Italian morphosyntactic negation system, in order to assess the relevance of this system as regards Sentiment Analysis (SA) practices and routines. The study will be conducted through the construction, application, evaluation, and debugging of specific NooJ grammars. Italian Negation may be of three different types, that is: lexical/morphological, syntactic, and semantic. Here, we will only deal with those features of Italian negation that are subject to formalization. As for sentence negation (SN), Italian employs above all the form non (not). It precedes the predicate inflecting in person and number, and produces sentences such as Non piove (It is false that it is raining), which are in opposition to their affirmative counterparts, i.e. Piove (It is true that it is raining).

Abstract

The main purpose of this study is the formalization of the Italian morphosyntactic negation system, in order to assess the relevance of this system as regards Sentiment Analysis (SA) practices and routines. The study will be conducted through the construction, application, evaluation, and debugging of specific NooJ grammars. Italian Negation may be of three different types, that is: lexical/morphological, syntactic, and semantic. Here, we will only deal with those features of Italian negation that are subject to formalization. As for sentence negation (SN), Italian employs above all the form non (not). It precedes the predicate inflecting in person and number, and produces sentences such as Non piove (It is false that it is raining), which are in opposition to their affirmative counterparts, i.e. Piove (It is true that it is raining).
