The Difference between 'Nobody' and 'None'
Is there a difference between the words 'none' and 'nobody'? Can they be used interchangeably? Here, we will go through these two words.
Nobody vs. None
'Nobody' as an indefinite pronoun, means no person, 'no one'. It is the negation of the pronoun 'somebody'.
'None' means not any (one) (of) a given number or group of things. It can take singular or plural verbs.
The main difference between 'nobody' and 'none' is that 'nobody' has no frame of reference, but 'none' does. When we use 'none', we have a frame of reference, which means we have a group of people or things in our mind and 'none' means no person or thing from that particular group.
