  5. "I do not shout."

"I do not shout."

Translation:Nem kiabálok.

July 15, 2016



I thought it was necessary to detach the prefix when it is being negated. Is there a reason it is not detached in this sentence?


There's no prefix here. "Kiabál" is one word. It would be "kikiabál" with a prefix (meaning "shout from inside to outside"). But you are right, a prefix should be detached: "Nem megyek ki." = "I don't go outside." (kimegy = go outside)
