I'm not sure about this...
So for example
if i changed:Hanasu to Hanasanai woud it mean Cant speak or wont speak?

I'm not sure how to conjugate verbs... :/ (i got the example above from a text book of mine :/)

Also could you try and explain

Stem form: it says in my little text book i got for my birthday that: 'its the shortest form of a verb,but it cant stad alone- it needs a verb suffix that indicates tense or some other condition. for example, you add masu to this form to to make an affirmative polite verb.'

And Te form: says that it usually ends in te or de to make a formal request....I dont quite get it could you explain please.
