"I do not know her, nor do I want to know her."
Translation:Mi ne konas ŝin, nek volas koni ŝin.
I'm more inclined to say: Mi nek konas nek volas koni ŝin" What do the rest of you think?
Would "Mi nek konas ŝin, nek volas koni ŝin." be correct, and if not, why?
My head is getting confused to what "ne" should stand for no, dont and cannot.
Ne is a negative term. It takes whatever is being said and makes it a negative statement. Hence it can mean all of those things which you list, and probably a few more.
For example: Mi konas ŝin is a normal sentence, one we can deem as positive. Toss a ne before the verb and now I don't know her. Toss that ne before one of the pronouns and it can be "Not I knows her (implying someone else does, just not you) or "I know not her" (Implying that you know someone, just not her). Mi iros (I will go) can become mi ne iros (I won't go). Ne respondu = Don't answer. etc.
Strictly, ne negatives the word it precedes, though this distinction is not always observed. Ne tute = not quite (entirely) but tute ne = by no means, not at all.
Ne~ is also used as a prefix analogous to the English "un~", "in~", "ir~", and "non~" f.e. nedeviga = optional, neklara = indistinct, unclear, nemetala = non-metallic, and neregula = irregular.
Mi esperas, ke vi ne plu estas neklara pro ne.
Warning, this sentence does not accept x-system, if you are wondering why you got it wrong. I have reported it
Scii is to know facts. You know physics, how to play with a ball, what color the sky is, etc.
Koni is to know a person, be aware of an idea, have a familiarity with a place, relate to an ambition. One konas a tree by its fruit. One scias only what one learns. etc.
You can koni something, but not scii it, and vice versa.
I only reversed the order from 'mi ne konas ŝin' to 'mi ŝin ne konas' and it didn't work - order doesn't matter strictly right?
Why does the verb take the form "konas" in the first clause and "koni" in the second?
Of the little that I know, I think the first one the verb is used in the Present, the second one is infinitive (to know)
