Conclusions



Present Simple Negative

Summary

We use the present simple, in its negative form, to deny situations that regularly, repeatedly or always occur.

When we use the present simple in its negative form, we start with the subject followed by do not and the verb in its base form. In the third person singular, we use does not.

For example:
— “I don’t work on important projects.” = The sentence is in the present simple negative, so we use do not followed by the base form of the verb to work (do not work).
— “She doesn’t work on important projects.” = The subject is she, so we use does not followed by the base form of the verb to work (does not work).

NOTE: The verb to be is irregular, so it doesn’t follow the general formation rule for the negative form, and we just add not after the verb.

Let’s revise this content within the {Form} section. Take a look at the {Example} section that shows its use within a context.
