Basic Sentence Structure
Subject + Verb + Object
The word order is not rigid, and rules permit use of any combination. As in English, it can effect the meaning of the sentence. For example, placing the verb at the end of the sentence is common for questions (just like English).

Negative Sentences
To make a sentence negative you put the word нe between the noun and verb.
I know =>Я знаю
I do not know => Я нe знаю
