Something vs Anything

Something versus Anything?

I am not expert in grammar so here’s an article i read about when to use the word ‘something’, ‘anything’, ‘someone’ and ‘anyone’. Hope this will help.

Hub Request: what  is the distinction between something and anything?

It’s easiest to first look at the definitions of “some” and “any”:

Some: An unspecified number or quantity

Any: to any degree or extent; one, some, every, or all without specification

Definition: Something

Something (pronoun): An indeterminate or unspecified thing, amount or extent

  • We all remembered something of their visit.
  • She was a biology teacher, but she knew something about physics.

Definition: Anything

Anything (pronoun): Any object, occurrence, or matter whatever.

  • Do you have anything you’d like to say?
  • I will have anything to eat
