Three ways to say ‘zero’ 用三種方式說 「沒有」



單字 「zero」 可以用來表示事物的數量為 「零」,即 「沒有」。如果想表達某人或某個地方 「沒有」 一件事物,除了說此物的數量是 「zero」 以外,還可以使用哪些常用的句式或詞語?看視頻,學習表示 「沒有」 的三種說法。


Hi, I’m Sam from BBC Learning English, and today we’re looking at the difference between no, not any and none.

Let’s have a look. Imagine you ask me this question: 「Do you have any change?」

I have zero change, and I can say this in three different ways.

「Sorry, I have no change.」 – where we use the verb ‘have’ with no, followed by a noun.

「Sorry, I don’t have any change.」 – where we have the negative don’t, followed by the verb, followed by any, followed by the noun.

Or I can say, 「Sorry. None at all.」 – where we use none without a verb or a noun. So it’s a short answer.

So now you shouldn’t have any problems with this!


Three ways to say ‘zero’

Do you have any change?

I have zero change.

Or you could say:

1. Verb + no + noun (動詞 + no + 名詞)

  • Sorry, I have no change.

2. don’t + verb + any + noun (don’t + 動詞 + any + 名詞)

  • Sorry, I don’t have any change.

3. None – without a verb or a noun (直接用單字 「none」,不加動詞或名詞)

  • Sorry, none at all.
