Неопределенные местоимения No/none/any; Nothing/nobody и др.

Урок 86

No и none

Мы используем no + существительное. No = not a или not any:

  • We had to walk home because there was no bus. (= there wasn’t a bus)
    Нам пришлось идти домой пешком, потому что не было ни одного автобуса.
  • Sue will have no difficulty (in) finding a job. (= Sue won’t have any difficulty ...)
    У Сью не возникнет (никаких) проблем с поиском работы.
  • There were no shops open. (= There weren’t any shops open.)
    Ни один магазин не был открыт.

Вы можете использовать no + существительное в начале предложения:

  • No reason was given for the change of plan.
    Не было (никаких) причин менять планы.

Мы используем none без существительного:

  • ‘How much money do you have?’ ‘None.’ (= no money = ни сколько)
  • All the tickets have been sold. There are none left. (= no tickets left = ни одного билета не осталось)

Или мы используем none of ... :

  • This money is all yours. None of it is mine.
    Досл.: Эти деньги – все твои. Ничего из этого не моё.

После none of + множественное число (none of the students, none of them и др.) глагол может быть в единственном или множественном числе. Глагол во множественном числе встречается чаще:

  • None of the shops were (or was) open.
    Ни один из магазинов не был открыт.

Nothing nobody/no-one nowhere

Вы можете использовать эти отрицательные слова в начале предложения или в одиночку (как ответы на вопросы):

  • Nobody (or No-one) came to visit me while I was in hospital. (Никто не пришел...)
  • ‘What happened?’ ‘Nothing.’ (Ничего)
  • ‘Where are you going?’ ‘Nowhere. (Никуда) I’m staying here.’

Вы также можете использовать эти слова после глагола, особенно после be и have:

  • The house is empty. There’s nobody living there.
    Дом пуст. Никто там не живет.
  • We had nothing to eat.
    У нас ничего не было поесть.

Nothing/nobody и др. = not + anything/anybody и др. :

  • I didn’t say anything. (= I said nothing.)
    Я ничего не сказал.
  • Jane didn’t tell anybody about her plans. (= Jane told nobody ...)
    Джейн никому не сказала о своих планах.
  • They haven’t got anywhere to live. (= They’ve got nowhere to live.)
    Им негде жить.

С nothing/nobody и др., не используйте глагол с отрицанием (isn’t, didn’t и т.п.), а при переводе на русский используйте:

  • I said nothing. (not I didn’t say nothing)
    Я ничего не говорил.
  • Nobody tells me anything. (not Nobody doesn’t tell me)
    Никто ничего мне не говорит.

Мы также используем any/anything/anybody и др. (без not), имея в виду ‘не важно который/что/кто’ (см. урок 85D). Сравните no- и any-:

  • There was no bus, so we walked home.
    You can take any bus. They all go to the centre. (= не важно какой)
  • ‘What do you want to eat?’ ‘Nothing. I’m not hungry.’
    I’m so hungry. I could eat anything. (= не важно что)
  • The exam was extremely difficult. Nobody passed. (= все завалили экзамен)
    The exam was very easy. Anybody could have passed. (= кто угодно мог сдать)

После nobody/no-one можно использовать they/them/their (см. также урок 85E):

  • Nobody phoned, did they? (= did he or she)
  • No-one did what I asked them to do. (= him or her)
  • Nobody in the class did their homework. (= his or her homework)
