Detecting instances of negation in text is crucially important for several applications, yet it is often neglected. Several decades of research in automated negation detection have not yet provided a reliable solution, especially in a multilingual context. Negation scope resolution poses particular challenges since identifying the scope of influence of a negation cue in a sentence requires a deeper level of natural language understanding. Little work has been done on negation scope resolution in languages other than English. Meanwhile, transfer learning is in wide use and large multilingual models are available to the public. This paper explores the feasibility of a cross-lingual transfer-learning approach to negation scope resolution. Preliminary experiments with the Multilingual BERT model and data in English, French, and Spanish show solid results with the highest F1-score 84.73 on zero-shot transfer between English and French.
