  5. "Do not tell him about it."

"Do not tell him about it."

Translation:Nie mów mu o tym.

Can the verb powiedz... correctly be used here instead of mów?


Not here. If you wanted your interlocutor to actually do tell that, then you would need "powiedz" - because that would be a one-time action, perfective.

But as not telling is... not telling ever, you need imperfective "nie mów".
