This question already has an answer here:
I'm having a little trouble figuring out where to place nicht in a sentence. I was told it usually goes in the end of a sentence, or in some cases it goes before an adjective, before a verb or before a preposition.
So if I understand it well, I cannot say:
*Im Flugzeug darf man nicht das Handy benutzen.
The correct sentence being:
Im Flugzeug darf man das Handy nicht benutzen.
Is that correct?
Okay, well in this case I can understand. But what if I said:
Man darf laut Musik nicht hören.
Would that be correct? Because in this case I think there's an adjective (i.e. laut) and a verb (i.e. hören), so what's the rule here? Can I place the nicht wherever I want, meaning, before laut or before hören? In other words, what's the correct sentence?
Man darf laut Musik nicht hören. or
Man darf nicht laut Musik hören.
Or maybe both?
