40. More Negatives

To make sentences negative, you place não before the verb. Other negatives may precede or follow the verb, but if they follow, they must follow a negative verb (a double negative).  The word order is não + verb + negative. Example: Ele não gosta de nada! He doesn’t like anything!

nada nothing, (not) anything
ninguém nobody, (not) anybody
nenhum(a) no, none
tampouco neither, either
nem nor
nem...nem neither... nor
nem sequer not even
nunca, jamais never, ever


Nunca means ever when it follows a comparative; jamais means ever when it follows an affirmative verb.
