Anybody can not come in without permission. × Nobody can come in without permission. √ ?“任何……不”是汉语中常用的否定句式，而在英 语中与any构成的合成词或被any修饰的词语作主语 时，谓语动词不能用否定式，因此any ... not的 表达形式不符合英语的习惯。翻译这类句子时须用 “否定形式的主语+肯定形式的谓语”。但当any的 合成词或any所修饰的词带有后置定语时，谓语可以 用否定式， 如： 干那种事的人都是不诚实的。 Anyone who does that isn't honest.
Having heard the news, nobody did not feel excited. × Having heard the news, everybody felt excited. √ ? 汉语中常用“没有+主语+不+谓语”这一双重否定 的结构，而英语中否定形式的主语习惯上不能与否定形 式的谓语连用。因此nobody... not的结构不符合英语的 表达习惯. 翻译这类句子时， 1）可把主语和谓语都改成肯定形式； 2）也可用另一结构的双重否定式： There be +否定的主语 + 否定形式的定语从句 如： There was nobody who did not feel excited.
Both of the books are not published in england. × Neither of the books is published in england. √
I don't agree to all these projects. × I agree to none of these projects. √ 或：I don't agree to any of these projects. ?英语中的概括词all, every, both,以及与every构成 的合成词,用语否定句式时,只表示部分否定，常译成“并 非……都”，因此两个错误译句的含义分别为：并非两本 书都是英国出版的,并非所有这些方案我都同意。要表达 全部否定意义时，英语须用全否定词语，如none， neither, no, nobody, nothing, not ... any, not ... either等。
This machine can not be used any longer, and that one can't, too. × This machine can not be used any longer, and that one can't either. √ 或：This machine can not be used any longer, neither (nor) can that one. ?否定句中的“也”不能译成too,而须用either，或用
You won't have to worry about rank and pay. × You won't have to worry about rank or pay. √ ? 在肯定句中用and来连接两个并列成分，表示 “和”，但在否定句中and应改为or, 这时否定词 对or的前后部分同时加以否定。
How not perfect the rules and regulations are! × How imperfect the rules and regulations are! √ ?汉语中的感叹句可用否定式，如：多不光彩呀！ 多不容易呀！而英语中的感叹句不能用否定式，我 们可用反义词或带有否定词缀的词来表示。
I think this is not worth trying. × I don't think this is worth trying. √ ?英语中表臆想、猜测的动词think, believe, expect, guess, imagine, suppose等，如果带有否定的宾语从句 ，宾语从句中的否定词通常提前，用来否定主句的谓 语动词。尤其是think, 按习惯用法，否定词只能置于 think前。
He came here not to ask us for help. × He did not come here to ask us for help. √ ?否定状语时，英语中的否定词一般不直接置于被 否定词语前，通常置于谓语动词前。只有当两个部 分加以对比时，即“不是……而是”时，否定词才 可直接置于状语前。 ?如：他来这儿不是为了求得我们的帮助，而是来 给我们提供一些信息。 ?He came here not to ask us for help, but to give us some information. 即使在这一结构中，英语还是常把否定词置于 谓语动词前。
He mustn't have completed his design. × He can't have completed his design. √ 对比较有把握的推测，肯定句中用must，而否定句 中用can't，对过去的推测，在must和can't后接完成 形式。
