In this paper, we introduce the first corpus specifying negative entities within sentences. We discuss indicators for their presence, namely particular verbs, but also the linguistic conditions when their prediction should be suppressed. We further show that a fine-tuned Bert-based baseline model outperforms an over-generating rule-based approach which is not aware of these further restrictions. If a perfect filter were applied, both would be on par.
