Today we will discuss a new topic, which is, the negation of a word. Now I am going to talk about two commonly-used negation words:“不” and “没”.
“不” is usually used to negate the present and the future, it can be used before the verbs.
“不”can be used in front of an adjective to negate the nature and the state of something.
“不” can be used in front of the auxiliary verbs to negate the willingness、ability and hobby etc.
In some situations, we can only use ‘不’ instead of ‘没’ for most of them are fixed collocations.
