Polarity: polarity

Value : Neg Pos

Neg: negative

In Naija, function words which are used to negate are marked with the Polarity feature. This typically applies to some particles and auxiliaries.

Example

Pos: positive

Positive polarity (affirmativeness) is rarely, encoded using overt morphology. Naija uses it to distinguish response interjections yes and no.
