Esperanto Negation

This is a lesson about negation in Esperanto. This includes words or expressions used to form a negative form as opposted to the affirmative. For example "I don't understand".

No: Ne
Nothing: Nenio
Not yet: ankoraŭ ne / Tamen
No one: Neniu
No longer: Ne plu
Never: neniam
Cannot: Ne povus
Should not: Ne devus

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: Ni ne komprenas
I do not speak Japanese: Mi ne parolas japana
I cannot remember the word: Mi ne rememoras la vorto
You should not forget this word: Vi ne devas forgesxi tiu cxi vorto
No problem!: Ne problemo
I don't know!: Mi ne konas tio
I'm not interested!: Mi ne interesas tio
Don't worry!: Ne zorgu
This is wrong: Tio estas malgxusta
This is not correct: tio ne estas korekta
No one here speaks Greek: Neniu tie parolas la greka
I'm not fluent in Italian yet: Mi ne flue parolas Itala tamen
