french, negative sentence

Je ne mange pas de pomme

How do negative sentences work in French? Get the explanation right here.

Look at these examples in the present tense:

1. Je ne chante pas.                          --            I don’t sing.

2. Je ne chante pas de rap.             --            I don’t sing a/ny rap songs.

.

A negative sentence in French has two negative parts, which surround the verb. In our examples, these 2 parts are ne and pas. In most cases, the first part is ne.

............................. not VERB --> ne VERBE pas

............................. I don't eat. -- Je ne mange pas.

To say not VERB a/ny, the French say ne VERBE pas de

............................. not VERB a/ny --> ne VERBE pas de

............................. -- I don't eat any apples. -- Je ne mange pas de pommes.

That’s about it for the basic rule. Pretty easy.
