Beforewelearnwhat ‘negation’ is, weneed to be sure we know the answers to the following questions.

  • What are the subjectpronouns in French?
  • Whatdoes « -er » meanat the end of a verb?
  • Whatendings do you replace « -er » with for eachsubjectpronoun?
  • Whatdoes ‘aller’ mean and how do weconjugateit?
what does er mean at the end of a verb
Whatdoes « -er » meanat the end of a verb?
  • ‘-er’ (and ‘-ir’ and ‘-re’) mean the word TO in English. It must beremovedfrom a verb in a processcalledconjugation.
  • Weusually have to getrid of the word ‘to’ or else the phrase soundsfunny. For example, itis correct to say ‘I speak French’ and not ‘I TO speak French’
negation the way in which we say that we do not insert a verb here
Negation : the way in which we say that we DO NOT (insert a verb here)
  • We do this in English, too! For instance:
    • I do not like homework.
    • We do not havetime.
    • You all do not carefor any other class besides Madame Burse’s 
  • We use two words- do not- to negate(make negative) our sentences!
  • Notice: we put do not IN FRONT OF the verb
ne pas in french do not in english
Ne . . . pas in French = do not (___) in English
  • Notice that it is ne…pas: the ellipse (those . . . ) are separating the ne and the pas. In between the ellipse is where the conjugated verb goes
  • Ne (inserted conjugated verb) pas = do not (verb)
  • Remember, conjugated means the verb matches the SUBJECT (like the subject pronouns je/tu/il/elle/nous/vous/ils/ells)

You like to dance = Tuaimesdanser.

(remember, “er” at the end means “to”!)

Let’s make it negative, “you don’t like to dance”; ne and pas surround the verb!!

Tu aimes danser BECOMES: Tu n’aimes pas danser

NOTICE !NE became n’ because in French two vowels CANNOT be next to each other !
