Translation:Intelligent people do not jump off trams or buses.
I just commented on your other post from three years ago:
"Hocus focus. :) Theres a... more obscure rule in Hungarian that subjects without an article pull the focus, or something. In any case, "emberek leszállnak" sounds weird. Either write "emberek szállnak le" or "az emberek leszállnak" if definites are allowed."
Sooo.. should in this case "nem leugranak" also be oke ?
Kris, nem generally also pulls the focus. If you negate something in your sentence, you'll usually clip off the verbal prefix:
A macska nem ugrik fel a székre. - The cat isn't jumping up onto the chair.
Nem a macska ugrik fel a székre, hanem a kutya. - It's not the cat jumping up onto the chair, but the dog.
The exception is if you replace the action by a different one:
- A macska nem felugrik a székre, hanem nyávog. - The cat is not jumping onto the chair but meowing.
