Polarity: whether the word can be or is negated


Negation is prominent feature in Uralic languages. The negation feature of Uralic dependencies is primarily used for the verb forms that go in negative sentences. In many cases there is a separate verb form for negative sentences that cannot be used in a context without negation, sometimes called a connegative form. This token should have feature Negative=Yes. There is no need to mark positive or affirmative forms with Negative=No feature, unless…

See also the Conneg feature, that is used in most uralic languages for the verb forms that accompany negation verb.

This is a bit messy TODO.
