Etymology

From Old High German nio.

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /niː/
  • Rhymes: -iː

Adverb

nie

  1. never, never at all (referring to an indefinite period of time)
    Das ist nie passiert! – That has never happened!
    Wir werden die Wahrheit wohl nie erfahren. – We'll probably never know the truth.
  2. never, not once (referring to a defined period of time; see usage notes below)
    Er hat sich in zwei Wochen nie die Haare gewaschen.
    He never washed his hair for two weeks.

Usage notes

  • (not once): In English it is quite common to use the word “never” referring to a defined period of time: “I was waiting all night, but he never called.” German generally prefers, and often requires, to use nicht (not) in such contexts, possibly emphasized by another adverb such as gar or überhaupt: Ich habe den ganzen Abend gewartet, aber er hat (gar) nicht angerufen. Using nie is only possible if such a period of time is (unusually) long, as in the example sentence above.

Synonyms

  • (never at all): niemals, nimmer (archaic)
  • (not once): nicht, gar nicht, überhaupt nicht
