Wenn wir bei Mengenangaben keine genaue Anzahl oder Menge (z.B. bei uncountable nouns) sagen können oder wollen, können wir im Englischen some und any verwenden.



Any und seine Zusammensetzungen anybody, anywhere, anything, etc. werden bei Verneinungen und Fragen eingesetzt. Some bei normalen Aussagesätzen.

positive Sätze
