German Negation : say “I am not a doctor in German”

You require “kein” to negate a noun in German.

“Kein” behaves exactly like indefinite German articles (ein, eine, ein, eine)

Ein Mann → Kein Mann (M)

Eine Frau → Keine Frau (F)

Ein Auto→ Kein Auto (N)

“Kein” also takes suffixes in different German cases

Einen Mann→ Keinen Mann (Accusative)

Einem Mann→ Keinem Mann (Dative)

 “Kein” is used for negation when the noun is preceded by an indefinite article (ein, eine…..) or when it is not preceded by any article.

Do not use it when it preceded by a definite article (der, die,das….).
