This is a lesson about negation in Hausa. This includes words or expressions used to form a negative form as opposted to the affirmative. For example "I don't understand".
|Nothing: babu komai|
|Not yet: ba yanzu ba|
|No one: ba kowa
|Never: har abada|
|Cannot: ba zan|
The below examples demonstrate how to use the negation form in a sentence. Don't be shy to use of these expressions if you don't know something.
|We don't understand: Ba ma fahimta|
|I do not speak Japanese: Ban iya yaren Japan ba
|I cannot remember the word: Ba zan iya tuna kalmar ba|
|You should not forget this word: Kada ka / ki manta da wannan duniyar
|No problem!: Babu matsala!|
|I don't know!: Ban sani ba!
|I'm not interested!: Ba ni da sha'awa|
|Don't worry!: Ka da ka damu!
|This is wrong: Wannan kuskure ne|
|This is not correct: Wannan ba dai dai ba ne
|No one here speaks Greek: A nan ba wanda ya iya Girkanci|
|I'm not fluent in Italian yet: Ban ƙware da magana da Italiyanci ba tukuna|
