Negatives of will.

what if i want to say I don't want or let's not, we should not.
in fact what would be should?, or shan't in japanese!(shan't opposite of should.)
I think I add content since I don't like making thread's that start out with a void, so here,
I know たべたい たべましょ たべる also thing's other then the formal form, may be nice. polite form also in fact give me both versions.
would wouldn't like to do something be 食べたいない。or would it be something different?

so the first one is a rather long japanese word.(never learned such a long one before).
and the second one is the conjugation, which i guess
食べたくない would imply a word morphing of たい were final い results into it being replaced by く and then it's just followed by ない right? if not you really don't need to explain more in depth. if yes Are their any more rules like that? i'd insist on you explaining with more depth if no, then you need to explain in much better detail.

reply to second post, I don't have one.

I'd rectify that soonest. Having a structured study plan is a major advantage.

You have some more options.
There's べき。
勉強するべき
勉強しないべき

Then たら. You use tara when someone asks your advice.
お腹はすいたんです。どうする?I'm hungry, what should I do?
食べたら You should eat/have you tried eating?

I can't even tell if this is sarcastic or not. :o
You've been here around here quite a while John, so you should have noticed that everyday there is a thread where someone is being advised that they should be using a textbook to study.

The optimism of those taking him seriously is heart-warming.

I read his post, and didn't even realise it was John. Only when skimming through the thread did I notice that... I was about to post a helpful answer, too.

Wheal.
Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

I do actually read what people say In my threads'. Actually with every mistake You uncover, You are one step closer, to both improving my english and my japanese, or both my japanese and my english.

Also If I knew the rules of how to negate these thing's i wouldn't ask.

that's why they are suggesting you get a textbook. iku and taberu are already verbs and don't need suru added to them to make them negative or positive. you need to learn to conjegate the original verb and then you can work on the grammar principles.
