<input type="button" value="Submit" onClick="alert('You forgot to enter a City.');">

Hope this is what you are looking for.

<Script type = text/javascript>
function getName() {
var city = prompt ("Please enter the name of a city.....", "");
if (city.length<4) { // ensures city name at least 4 characters length
city = prompt ("Please try again.....", "");
if (city.length <4) {
getName(); // go round again until a valid response is given

<Input type = "button" name= "button1" value = "Enter your city" onclick="getName()">

Do please write English. There is no need to advertise poor literacy.
