Not ever; not at any time; at no time, whether past, present, or future.
- Not ever; on no occasion; at no time: He had never been there before. You never can be sure.
- Not at all; in no way; absolutely not: Never fear. That will never do.
- never mind Don't bother: I was hoping for some help, but never mind, I'll do it alone.
- never mind Not to mention; and certainly not: I can't tread water, never mind swim.
