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.

Tuesday, September 20th 2016

Thanks Ronnie for your lessons and help but we need to practice our pronunciation voicly with someone hope to be you are. I searched many times about US skype accounts but nothing found.

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 :]

Thanks so much

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

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

Saturday, October 1st 2016

Thanks Ronnie!

I haven’t got any problem with this lesson, and I learnt why not to use “ain’t” and double negatives, generally, in English. Let me try a possibly valid one, albeit weird: Jack didn’t buy a not used motorcycle, differently of what you recomended for his safety when you said: “Buy a not used motorcycle, if you are desiring to buy one”.

Interesting that in Portuguese the double negative works to reinforce the negative, what is contrary to logic.

Saturday, October 1st 2016

In Chinese two double-negatives words mean one positives word,Which like “I don’t have nothing” mean “I do have anything” in Chinese grammar.It’s very different. XD
