This is a lesson about negation in Somali. This includes words or expressions used to form a negative form as opposted to the affirmative. For example "I don't understand".
|Not yet: Weli|
|No one: Qofna / cidna
|No longer: Mar danbe|
|Should not: ma haboonayn|
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: Ma fahamno|
|I do not speak Japanese: Af Jabaniis ma ku hadlo
|I cannot remember the word: Ereyga ma xasuusan karo|
|You should not forget this word: Ereyga ma xasuusan karo
|No problem!: Inaad iloowdo ma ahan ereygaan|
|I don't know!: Ma garanayo
|I'm not interested!: Ma daneeynayo|
|Don't worry!: Ha wal-welin!
|This is wrong: Tani waa khalad|
|This is not correct: Tani wax ma ahan
|No one here speaks Greek: Qofna Af Giriig ma ku hadlo|
|I'm not fluent in Italian yet: Weli si xiriir ah Af Talyaani uguma hadli karo|
