# What Is Their Difference?

What is the difference between these two sentences? 'Ask somebody for help'. And 'Ask somebody else for help'. Let's see.

# Somebody vs. Somebody Else

When we don't know who a person is or we don't need to specifically say who we want to refer to, we use indefinite pronouns. One example of these pronouns is 'somebody'.

You need to ask somebody .

You need to ask somebody else .

The adverb 'else' has a sense of exclusion. There's a hint of 'but me' in it. As in the second example, it means 'you need to ask somebody else (but me). But in the first example, 'somebody' includes the speaker, too.

He's nice to everybody (including me) .

He's nice to everybody else (but me) .
