[*] 328. The negative is frequently joined with a conjunction or with an indefinite pronoun or adverb. Hence the forms of negation in Latin differ from those in English in many expressions:—
- nūllī ( neutrī ) crēdō (not nōn crēdō ūllī ), I do not believe either (I believe neither).
- sine ūllō perīculō; (less commonly cum nūllō ), with no danger (without any danger).
- nihil umquam audīvī iūcundius, I never heard anything more amusing.
- Cf. negō haec esse vēra (not dīcō nōn esse ), I say this is not true (I deny, etc.)
- “hostēs terga vertērunt, neque prius fugere dēstitērunt ” (B. G. 1.53) , the enemy turned and fled, and did not stop fleeing until, etc.
