CatalanEdit

PronunciationEdit

Etymology 1Edit

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

NounEdit

pas m (plural passos)

  1. step, pace

AdverbEdit

pas

  1. (in negative sentences) Used to intensify negation: at all, ever
    No feu pas aixòDo not ever do this
    No serà pas important.It won't matter. (literally, “It won't be so important.”)
Usage notesEdit

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.

Etymology 2Edit

Back-formation from passar.

InterjectionEdit

FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old French pas, from Latin passus.

Its use as an auxiliary negative adverb comes from an accusative use (Latin necpassum) in negative constructions – literally “not… a step”, i.e. “not at all” – originally used with certain verbs of motion. In older French other nouns could also be used in this way, such as ne… goutte (not… a drop) and ne… mie (not… a crumb), but in the modern language pas has become grammaticalised.

    J’veux pas travailler.
    I don't wanna work.
    Short for: Je ne veux pas travailler

Usage notesEdit

Pas follows the inflected verb, which is normally preceded by the particle ne, as in the examples Je ne sais pas and Ma grande sœur n’habite pas avec nous above. In the colloquial language, ne can be dropped, as in the example J’veux pas travailler above.
