ne, nen

  1. (dialectal, Flemish) a, an
    ne man, correct form is een man — a man
    nen auto, correct form is een auto — a car

In Flanders this is commonly used as the dialectal form of een. It is only used for masculine words, while een is still used for feminine and neuter words.

The form nen is used before vowels and certain consonants, differing from dialect to dialect. The same happens for the definite article de which becomes den, and sometimes for adjectives as well.


ne

  1. no
  2. not

ne (plural, stem nii-)

  1. (of things and animals) they. Plural of the pronoun se (“it”).
  2. (demonstrative) When used like a definite article, “the” or “those”.
    Tässä ne kirjat nyt ovat. — “Here are the books now.”
  3. (colloquial, dialectal, of people) they (in literary standard: he).

The case suffixes are mostly regular (except inessive and elative singular). Abessive is never used in singular and extremely seldom in plural. Comitative niin is more or less a theoretical construction, since it has developed into an adverb, and its current meaning cannot be derived from ne.


ne

  1. (before a verb, with a subsequent negative word) used to form negatives; not, no
    Je ne sais pas — “I do not know.”
    Je ne sais rien — “I know nothing.”
    Je ne sais jamais — “I never know.”
  2. (in a subordinate clause before a subjunctive verb, following a main verb expressing doubt or fear) not (usually not translated into English)
    Pour autant que je ne sache il est toujours là. — “As far as I know he is still there.” (Literally, “For as much as I might not know, he is still there.”)
  3. (in grammatically negative comparative clauses that express superlatives) not (usually translated with the positive sense of the subsequent negative)
    le gâteau le plus grand que je n’ai jamais vu — “the biggest cake that I have ever seen” (literally, “the cake bigger than which I have never seen”)


ne?

  1. (colloquial) no?; is it not?
