Negative expressions in passé composé

There is no such thing as "or after" the auxiliary. The negative of these forms is formed by wrapping the ne+pas/whatever circumfix around the auxiliary and any accompanying pronoun:

Je ne m’en suis pas moqué.

Je ne l’ai pas frappé.


In most spoken forms of French (and writing that emulates them), the ne is almost universally dropped, which is the only way I can think of that one could describe a negative as being placed "after" the auxiliary.

in passé composé most of the adverbs come in between the auxiliary verb and the past participle.


  • Je ne suis jamais allé en France.
  • Je n’ ai rien compris.
  • Je n’ ai pas encore mangé.


  • Je n’ ai vu personne.
  • Personne n’ est venu.
  • Rien n’ a changé.

NOTE: Adverbs of place and time come after the past participle


  • Nous avons parlé hier.
  • Je ne suis allé nulle part.
