How do you tell the difference between; The father is not asleep and The father does not sleep?

Can it be? pater dormit non

I get the impression that "non" negates the word after it. For that, there has to be a word after it to negate.

Sorry about that Korean only comment, This is for Korean users who learn Latin

  • Pater - Father, in English Pater(페이터) : 아버지 (england, old english)
  • Mater - Mother, in English Mater(메이터) : 어머니 (england, old english)
  • Mater 해부학에서 뇌막이란 뜻도 있다.
