Information about the subject

English - Pronoun

NONE * Not any (one) _of_ a given number or group of things. With singular or plural concord. * 2006, Clive James, _North Face of Soho_, Picador 2007, page 253: Alas, NONE of these people were writing the reviews. * Not any person: no one, nobody (with singular concord); no people (with plural concord). USAGE NOTES Although uncountable nouns require _none_ to be conjugated with a singular verb, _e.g._, _None of this meat tastes right_, the pronoun can be either singular or plural in most other cases, _e.g._, _Fifty people applied for the position, but none were accepted._, and _None was qualified_. However, where the given or implied context is clearly singular or plural, then a matching verb makes better sense: _NONE of these men is my father._ _NONE of those options is the best one._ _NONE of these people are my parents._ ANTONYMS * some * all DERIVED TERMS * half a loaf is better than none TRANSLATIONS

none

  1. Not any (one) of a given number or group of things. With singular or plural concord.
  2. Not any person: no one, nobody (with singular concord); no people (with plural concord).

Usage notes

Although uncountable nouns require none to be conjugated with a singular verb, e.g., None of this meat tastes right, the pronoun can be either singular or plural in most other cases, e.g., Fifty people applied for the position, but none were accepted., and None was qualified.

However, where the given or implied context is clearly singular or plural, then a matching verb makes better sense:

None of these men is my father.
None of those options is the best one.
None of these people are my parents.
