This paper reports on an investigation to compare a number of strategies to include negated features within the process of Inductive Rule Learning (IRL). The emphasis is on generating the negation of features while rules are being "learnt"; rather than including (or deriving) the negation of all features as part of the input. Eight different strategies are considered based on the manipulation of three feature sub-spaces. Comparisons are also made with Associative Rule Learning (ARL) in the
