Re: No in Indonesian

English is not my first langauge but isn't "negate" the word to be used instead of "neglect"?

To clarify, I have problems with this explanation in the grammar section: "Bukan is used to neglect nouns and adverbs, Tidak is used to neglect verbs and adjectives, ..." I think neglect is the wrong word here.

You're right, it should be "negate".
Thanks for mentioning it.
It's fixed now.

Negate means that the effects or impact of something is cancelled or countered. You need to provide the context for a better explanation. Neglect means to fail to attend properly to something. The two words are not related.
