While doing negation with 'de' ,

While doing negation with 'de' ,

Hi Laura, I have a query negation with 'de'. I know that with être it stays the same and in case of IL y a and avoir un,une, des changes to de. What about other verbs than the ones mentioned. Does it apply in all cases ?I'd like to know please.

Bonjour Trupti !

The être exception applies to all so-called "verbes d'état" (state verbs) in French, which are verbs that describe a state the subject of the sentence is in.

Here is the complete list of "verbes d'état", which I've now added to the lesson :)

I hope that's helpful!
Bonne journée !

Thank you Laura .
