Basque: I'm not, you're not

Hi everyone!

I'm writing something and need to know if the proper way to say "You are not" (as in, basically, you don't exist) and "I am not" (as in I don't exist) are, respectively, "Ez zara" and "Ez naiz". Also, would they be pronounced, again respectively, "Es-sara" and "Es-nais"?

Thanks and cheers!

    Ez naiz /e'nais/
    Ez zara /etsa'ra/

    (From a non-speaker): This may be colloquial or dialectal, but it's what I've always heard.
