Influence of Information Structure on the Salience of Opinions

  • We study the influence of information structure on the salience of subjective expressions for human readers. Using an online survey tool, we conducted an experiment in which we asked users to rate main and relative clauses that contained either a single positive or negative or a neutral adjective. The statistical analysis of the data shows that subjective expressions are more prominent in main clauses where they are asserted than in relative clauses where they are presupposed. A corpus study suggests that speakers are sensitive to this differential salience in their production of subjective expressions.
