Negation and Negative Words in Spanish
It's very simple to make verb phrases negative in Spanish. In most cases, you simply put the word no in front of whatever verb or verb phrase you want to negate.
Negation using just no is the most basic type of Spanish verb negation, but you can use other negative words and phrases in combination with no. Examples of some of these words and phrases are given below.
