French negation: Pas

By February 19, 2013

Follow me on:

The French negative adverb pas is often used in conjunction with ne, but pas can also be used all on its own. The main difference is that ne... pas is used to negate a verb, while pas without ne is used to negate an adjective, adverb, noun, or some other non-verbal construction, and can be used to request confirmation of a statement.
