Good day ABA Friends.
Compound words with “no”
Compound nouns are composed of two words or more but have just one meaning.
No + body = nobody
No + one = no-one
No + thing = nothing
No + where = nowhere
There is no difference between nobody and no-one. They are used in sentences where the verb is in affirmative.
“I have nobody to take me to school”
“No-one had any money”
Whereas we use “any” where the verb is in the negative.
“I don’t have anybody to take me to school”
“I don’t think anybody had any money”
Other uses of “No” and the word “None”
Here are some examples of the word “no”:
“I’m sorry, there is no tea, only coffee”
“They played very well but scored no goals”
“None” is a pronoun that is frequently used to answer the questions “how much…?” and “how many…?”
“How many children went to the park? None. “
“Where there many questions after the exam? No, none. “
