Negative Verb

A negative verb is a type of auxiliary that is used to form the negative of a main verb. The main verb itself has no personal endings, while the negative verb takes the inflection. The English auxiliary don't or doesn't performs a similar function: one says we don't make, where make has no inflection, and don't is essentially a negative verb that indicates the person/number of we (contrast he doesn't with a different person/number).
