Oui, Michael, in spoken French the 'ne' is often omitted or swallowed up in sloppy speech but the norm.

However, in written Fench it is still required .

Hope this helps!

Merci beaucoup Cécile. Et je vois que j'ai fait un erreur dans ma question où j'ai écrit << cettes phrases >> . Ça devrait être <<ces phrases>>, non ?

Hi Michael,

Yes it would be 'ces phrases' and I would use the verb dire (to say) rather than parler (to speak).
