ne..plus/ne..jamais

Do ne..plus and ne..jamais follow the same rule as ne..pas do with reflexive verb?

Hi Charlene,

Just to correct a few things said earlier, yes they do but you need to use the auxilliary verb 'être' in the passé composé for reflexive verbs.

e.g. 

Non, je ne me maquille plus No, I don't make up any longer

Non, Il ne s'est jamais rasé = No, he has never shaved 

Hope this helps!

Bonsoir Claire, That is correct for the negation of reflexive verbs when using ne . . .plus and ne . . . jamais and any other negation structural pair, i.e. ne . . .rien, ne . . . aucun(e). For example: I do not shave anymore. --> Je ne me rase plus. I have never shaved. --> Je ne m'ai jamais rasé From the lesson: «When using a negative structure like "ne/n'...pas" with reflexive verbs in simple tenses, ne/n' is placed before the reflexive pronoun "me/te/se/nous/vous/se", and pas is after the verb. Il s'amuse beaucoup -> Il ne s'amuse pas beaucoup He's having a lot of fun -> He's not having a lot of fun» I hope that you find this beneficial. Bonne chance et bonne continuation. à bientôt
