“Don’T Buy” Or “Do Not Buy”?: Negation Styles and Product Evaluations
This research investigates how the use of negations—that is, contractions (“isn’t”) versus two-word negations (“is not”)—differentially influences product evaluations in online consumer reviews. Our findings show that in the contraction condition, people evaluate the target product more positively than in the two-word negation condition.
