This question already has an answer here:

I have seen these forms used in manga:

1) いや一概にあほとは言えん

2) そう思わんですか!

3) 入らん人々は...

Are these simply the negative forms, or are they something else?

  • ん is contracted from ぬ which acts as a negation. – xyzjayne Mar 14 '17 at 17:04

These are simply contracted forms of the negations of those verbs, i. e. 思わん=思わぬ/思わない etc.
