Double Negative/ Nie ontkenning

In Afrikaans there is a double negative.

To write a sentence in the negative follow these steps:

1. Look for the verb.

2. The first “nie” goes after the verb.

3. The second “nie” goes to the end of the sentence.

Ek loop in die straat. (verb=loop)

Ek loop NIE in die straat NIE.

If a sentence ends with a question mark you answer the question by using the word Nee.

Loop hy in die straat?

Nee hy loop nie in die straat nie.
