ESL Grammar Resources

Some and Any           
 

 

Some is usually used to indicate positive substance. Any is used in questions and negatives. For example,

    There is some bread on the table.

    I would like some more meat.

    Do you have any towels?

    There aren't any more oranges.

     

Some and any can also be used as parts of indefinite pronouns: something, somebody, anything, anyone.

    Is anyone home?

    There isn't anything in the oven.

    Something is wrong.

Be careful when using some and any alone in sentences.

    I don't have some.

    I don't have any.


    (Incorrect)

    (Correct)

 

Some can also be used in certain types of questions, such as offers and requests. For example,

    Would you like some more pie?

    Could I have some candy?
