Making negative sentences

There are a few ways of forming negative.

1) By putting "Ma-" and "-sh" either side of the simple present verb. It gives the meaning of " Don't " for statement.
  • Ma a'kulsh bil lail
  • I don't eat at night - انا ماأكلش بلليل

2) By putting "Ma-" and "-sh" either side of the simple present verb, also can be used for instruction, "Don't do that"
  • Ma ta'kulsh keda
  • Don't eat like that (you, masc) - ماتأكلش كده

3) By putting "Ma-" and "-sh" either side of the present continuous verb. It gives the meaning of " Not doing".
  • Ma biya'kulish dil wakti
  • He is not eating right now - هو مابيأكلش دالوقت

4) By putting "Ma-" and "-sh" either side of the past verb and it gives the meaning of " Didn't "- (to deny)
  • Ma akaltish embarikh
  • I didn't eat yesterday - مااكلتش إمبارح

5) By putting "Mesh" either side of the simple present verb. It gives the meaning of " Don't " for statement, same like 1st method above. So you can choose either one of them that you like most and much easier to pronounce, there is no different.
  • Mesh a'kul bil lail
  • I don't eat at night - انا مش أكل بلليل
6) By putting "Mesh" before Noun and it gives the meaning of " Not".
  • Ana mesh mu'alim
  • I'm not a teacher - انا مش معلم

7) By putting "Mesh" with the adjective and it gives the meaning of " Not".
  • Ana mesh tawil
  • I'm not tall - انا مش طويل

8) By putting " Mesh" before present verb with "Ha" at the beginning to deny for future
  • Ana mesh ha-rouh mattar buqra
  • I won't go to the airport tomorrow - انا مش هاروح المطار بكرة

9) By putting " Balaash" in front of present verb for instruction
  • Balaash ta'kul
  • Stop eating, don't eat (you, masc) - بلاش تأكل
