Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *ne + *este, second-person plural present tense form of *byti. This formation later created *ne jesmъ in the South Slavic vernaculars, which merged to become něste (attested in the 14th century). Because of the yat reflex, něste became rendered as neste in Ekavian speeches.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ně:ste/
  • Hyphenation: ne‧ste

Verb[edit]

néste (Cyrillic spelling не́сте)

  1. (regional, chiefly Serbia) negative second-person plural present tense form of biti.
