SOME, ANY + -BODY / -ONE, + -THING, + -WHERE The compounds of some and any behave in the same way as some and any, that is to say, some-, in affirmative sentences and, any-, in negatives and questions, although we use some- in the interrogative to offer something, to ask for something or when we expect a positive response, as we saw in the previous unit. Examples: I saw somebody there. I did not see anybody there. Did you see anybody there? Would you like something better? Instead of I did not see anybody there, we can say I saw nobody there, but we cannot use two negative words: *I did not see nobody there. Anybody, nobody and somebody mean the same as anyone, no-one and nobody respectively. No-one can also be written no one. Any can also mean "every" or "it does not matter which / who": You can take any pencil. Anybody can do it. It's very easy. Let's see the following examples to end with: Somebody told me you were abroad. Nobody came to the meeting. Was there anybody in the house? I want something to eat.
