Nicht / Keine
As you can see, I'm a newbie German "student".
I was studying plurals when I saw the word "keine".
What's the difference between Keine and Nicht?
When you use each one?
Do exist other words like those?
Thanks a lot!
Kein is used with nouns: Ich habe kein Haus. (I don't have a house). Nicht is used with verbs: Ich schwimme nicht. (I don't swim).
The interesting thing is that "kein" is used in place of ein/eine/ein, AND it has a plural version- kein/keine/kein/keine. It is actually an adjective- meaning "no" or "not any".
Other words like it would be other adjectives that describe quantity, like "viel" (numerous) or wenig (less, least).
In English, the word “no” is often the same as German «kein», but we use it infrequently:
- Ich esse keinen Fleisch = I eat no meat (literally) or I don’t eat meat (commonly)
In German, whenever you have a noun, you will tend to negate that (using kein) instead of the verb (using nicht): you don’t say «Ich habe Hunger nicht», but «Ich habe keinen Hunger».
