Hi Ron - yes, I see it needs a little tidy up - we'll do that, but in fact the note has examples underneath which show each case so that should help.

Hi Ron,

it is actually not so bad if you memorize this order:

Je ne dirai plus jamais rien à personne. -- I will never again say something to anybody.

First plus, then jamais, then rien and lastly personne. You won't normally encounter all of them in one negation (as, e.g., in the above illustrative example). But the order remains:

Je ne dirai rien à personne. -- I won't say anything to anybody.
Je ne le dirai jamais à personne. -- I wont ever say it to anybody.
... etc. ...
