This is a lesson about negation in Maltese. This includes words or expressions used to form a negative form as opposted to the affirmative. For example "I don't understand".
|Not yet: Mhux għalissa|
|No one: Ħadd
|No longer: Daqshekk|
|Cannot: Ma nistax (1st person), Ma tistax (2nd person), Ma jistax (3rd person M), Ma tistax (3rd person F),|
|Should not: Mhux suppost|
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 nifhmux.|
|I do not speak Japanese: Ma nitkellimx bil-Ġappuniż
|I cannot remember the word: Ma nistax niftakar il-kelma|
|You should not forget this word: Ma tistax tinsa' din il-kelma
|No problem!: Mhux problema!|
|I don't know!: Ma nafx!
|I'm not interested!: Mhux interessat!|
|Don't worry!: Tinkwetax!
|This is wrong: Dan ħażin (M), Din ħażina (F)|
|This is not correct: Dan mhux tajjeb (M), Din mhix tajba (F)
|No one here speaks Greek: Ħadd ma jitkellem bil-Grieg hawn|
|I'm not fluent in Italian yet: S'issa ma nitkellimx bit-Taljan b'mod fluwidu.|
