“Don’T Buy” Or “Do Not Buy”? Negation Style and Product Evaluations
We investigate how negation style—that is, contracted (“isn’t”) versus full negations (“is not”)—in online reviews influences product evaluations. When reviews contain contracted negations, consumers evaluate the target product more positively than when reviews contain full negations. This effect is driven by consumers’ perceptions of reviewers’ warmth and knowledge.
