    Sometimes it is better to shout than to - keep quiet
  4. no (reinforces a mandate in interrogative sentences)
Usage notes
Non usually contracts in speech with a following definite article or personal pronoun (a, as, o, os). The result of this contraction, in the past written as nono, no-no, n'o, among other forms, is [nona], [nono], [nonas], [nono] in the east and central areas and [na], [no], [nas], [nos] in the west. Today these contractions are rarely shown in written Galician:
Non o queres? ("You don't want it?"): IPA(key): (central) [nonoˈkɛɾɪs], (western) [noˈkɛs].

Pronunciation
Etymology 1
From Proto-Vietic *k-nɔːn, from *k-rn-ɔːn, which Ferlus considered an infixed derivation of Proto-Vietic *kɔːn (“child”). Cognate with Chut [Rục] kunɔːn¹, Semai kenon (“child”), Juang kɔnɔn ("child, son, the young one; young"), Khmu [Cuang] krnɔːn ("uterus"). Likely received some semantic influence from (MC nuənH) (SV: nộn) as well.
