In English is it more idiomatic to say “don’t you remember your old friends now?” than “you forget your old friends now?”
If this is the case, would you please tell me if there is a reason why English would rather use :
a) the verb “not remember” (negative) instead of “forget” (affirmative)?
b) the interrogative form rather the affirmative form, even in informal language?
All the best,
