This is a lesson about negation in Yoruba. This includes words or expressions used to form a negative form as opposted to the affirmative. For example "I don't understand".
|Not yet: koiya|
|No one: ko si enikan
|No longer: Ko si mọ|
|Never: ko si rara|
|Cannot: ko le ṣe|
|Should not: kò gbọdọ̀|
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: Kò yé wa|
|I do not speak Japanese: Mí ko sọ́ Japani.
|I cannot remember the word: Mi ko ranti oro na.|
|You should not forget this word: Ó kò gbọ́dọ̀ gbagbe ọ̀rọ̀ na.
|No problem!: Ko si wahala.|
|I don't know!: Mi ko mọ.
|I'm not interested!: Mi ko ni ifẹ si.|
|Don't worry!: Ma ṣe iyọnu.
|This is wrong: Eyi bajẹ.|
