Catalan[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Occitan pas, from Latin passus (step). Its use as an auxiliary adverb comes from an accusative use (Latin nec...passum) in negative constructions – literally ‘not...a step’, i.e. ‘not at all’ – originally used with certain verbs of motion.

Adverb[edit]

pas

  1. (in negative sentences) Used to intensify negation: at all, ever
    No feu aixòDo not do this
    No feu pas aixòDo not ever do this

Usage notes[edit]

The main marker of negation in Catalan is the adverb no. No is placed before the verbs, while pas is usually placed after it. Unlike French, where pas is a mandatory negative particle (under many circumstances); in Catalan, pas is only used as an optional intensifier of negation.
