Affirmative and Negative Expressions SPA 102 There are many words that can be used to express something negative or positive in Spanish. However what’s different that the English language is that Spanish uses double negatives. Meaning that in one sentence use 2 negative words, which one can be the word no to show that the sentence is negative. o Example: NO conozco a NADIE aquí. o NUNCA hay NADIE aquí. Positive expressions and definitions: o Alguien someone o Algo something o Algún some, any (can also be changed to alguno, alguna, algunos, or algunas depending on the form). o Siempre always o También also o O…o… either, or Negative expressions and definitions: o Nadie no one, nobodhy o Nada nothing o Ningún none, not any (can also be changed to ninguno, ninguna, ningunoa, or ningunas depending on the form.) o Nunca never o Tampoco neither, or o Ni… ni… neither The only 2 words that change in sentences are ALGUN and NINGUN. o When either of these 2 words are used as adjectives they must agree with the nouns that they are modifying. o Before a masculine, singular noun alguno and ninguno are used as algún and ningún in Spanish. o These 2 words can also be used as pronouns, but in this case they must agree with the nouns that were previously referred to in the sentence. o Also ninguno/a is usually never used in the plural. Always remember to use the personal “a” when you are referring to a person in a sentence in Spanish! o Example: No visito a nadie los fin de semana.
