What dou you mean by saying slightly formal? In every modern language there must be just one negative adverb. No way there is a slightly formal way of negating, a formal way etc. So i put "slightly formal" away

I don't know about Swedish, but I suppose the adverb could be slightly formal if there's another way to say it without using the adverb (e.g. English "don't" avoids using "not"). Equinox 21:48, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
But it is slightly formal, because there is more than one negative adverb in Swedish. The more usual way is inte. I'll put it back. —CodeCat 21:58, 21 September 2012 (UTC)


What's the etymology of this word? --Njardarlogar (talk) 11:46, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

I checked the translation table for not, and this word looks a lot like Norwegian ikke, Icelandic ekki. --Fsojic (talk) 11:53, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
