Hi Ronnie.
Thank you very much to delivered a great lecture that covered double negative sentence, even I got D grade but unfortunately I did not understand why we use double negative words in a sentence. I am wondering if you explain or help me.

Hi Ronnie.
‘I don’t have nothing’ – I think, the hungarian students often make this mistake.
In Hungarian this sentence is right, and ’I don’t have anything’ (literally)= it is strange.
We say: ’I don’t have milk.’ (like in English) and ’I don’t have nothing’ (no milk, no bread, no butter, nothing)
It isn’t a mathematical problem in Hungarian. Repetition of negation gives a stronger tone, therefore we often use double negatives.

by the way, it would be grate if someone could create channel explaining 3000 most common words with examples, many times i had encountered with totally different meanings of words depending on situation ( Longman common words). i never seen anybody who made that kind of project. some people learn listening, reading… but lot of people remember words because they could hear,see, and link to the situation. thanks a lot anyway, good job :]

Wednesday, September 21st 2016

thaks so much Ronnie :)

Wednesday, September 21st 2016

Yeah! ten! Well Ronnie I found a lot songs wherein its lyrics appear to “ain´t” double negative: Nina Simone “Ain’t got no home, ain’t got no shoes
Ain’t got no money, ain’t got no class…”

There´re people who say “ain´t? just it´s a slang, it´s good, use it” because (perhaps) this is popular, accepted or legitimate. But I do agree with you it´s no grammatically correct. Do you have another opinion about this? Greetings!

Wednesday, September 21st 2016

Thank you for teaching us this VERY important topic, Ronnie. Personally, I think it’s cool sometimes to use “ain’t got no” because I don’t want to be formal all the time, I want to be a cool speaker, but watching this video kind of makes me rethink that and speak as it should be spoken.

I might let “ain’t” out every now and then, though.

Bye, Ronnie!

Wednesday, September 21st 2016

I got 90.thanks Ronnie.

Thursday, September 22nd 2016

thank you Ronnie its a great lesson …..I got 10\10 in the quiz.

Friday, September 23rd 2016

I’m very satisfied with this lesson.
I will not use double negative !

Friday, September 23rd 2016

got 10 out of 10..thank you!
I thought before, ain’t was a cool word to use in a conversation :D

Friday, September 23rd 2016

We don’t need no education… hehe, well I guess the double negative is just an artistic measure, and the actual artist knows the right grammar. What I’ve noticed recently is that there’s a huge trend for “ain’t + no” in the music, which I personally find really annoying, but well… what can we do :)

Friday, September 23rd 2016

Thanks for your effort

Friday, September 23rd 2016

I got 100%.
