Negation Expressions in French

  1. 1. Negation Expressions Français 2 NCVPS
  2. 2. Révisons! Making a sentence negative (or saying thatsomething is not so) is extremely easy in French! In most cases, to negate a sentence, you just have to add the words “ne” and “pas” around the verb… and that’s all!Il chante – He sings Il ne chante pas – He doesn’t singJe suis français – I am French Je ne suis pas français – I am not French
  3. 3. More Expressions! Using « ne… pas » is not the only way to make a sentencenegative in French. There are a few other phrases that you can use to be more precise…Ne…jamais = never Ex. Il ne chante jamais – he never singsNe…rien = nothing/anything Ex. Je ne vois rien – I see nothing/I don’t see anythingNe…plus = no longer/anymore Ex. Elle ne mange plus – she doesn’t eat anymoreNe…que = only Ex. Je n’aime que les BMW – I only like BMWsNe…personne = anyone/no one Ex. Je ne connais personne – I know no one/ I don’t know anyoneNe… nulle part = anywhere/nowhere Ex. Je ne vais nulle part – I’m not going anywhere/I’m going nowhere
