"ne pas se lever!" is this a correct form?

Hi Murat 

'Ne pas se lever' is the correct infinitive form for 'not getting up'.

e.g.

Je ne vais pas me lever tôt demain matin = I am not going to get up early tomorrow

Il ne va pas se lever devant elle car il a mal au dos = He is not going to rise up in front of her as he has back ache

Ils ne se lèvent jamais avant 11 heures du matin = They never get out of bed before 11 am

Hope this helps!

Bonjour Murat, Je vais me lever tôt The negative statement, I am not going to get up early seems to me to be Je ne vais pas me lever tôt ! However, it is possible that Je vais ne pas me lever tôt ! could also be correct, i.e. I am going to not get up early. Perhaps we need to hear from Aurélie as to which is correct on this. Ron

No, ne . . . pas needs to be separated, for sure
