# Does gensim use Negative sampling in Word2vec?

When I train a word2vec model in Gensim on a huge amount of words/data (let's say hundreds of thousands of word vectors), is gensim using negative sampling automatically?

Alternatively, is there a way to make it use it?

Gensim's word2vec can use negative sampling. When calling class gensim.models.word2vec.Word2Vec, there is a parameter negative. The default amount is negative=5.
