Etymology

Usage notes

The main marker of negation in Catalan is the adverb no. No is placed before the verbs, while pas is usually placed after it. Unlike French, where pas is a mandatory negative particle (under many circumstances); in Catalan, pas is only used as an optional intensifier of negation.
