PostSubject: No VS Not   Fri Dec 04, 2015 11:40 pm

The word no never precedes: a, an, the, any, much, many, enough.



No is used:

as an exclamation.
as an adjective before singular and plural nouns.


Not is used:

as an adverb to make a sentence negative.
to make an adjective or adverb negative.
in short replies with a number of verbs.


Examples:

We have no money in the bank now.
We do not have any money in the bank now.


There are no books in the bookcase.
There are no English books in the bookcae.
There are not any books in the bookcase.


Do you like coffe? No, I don't.
Didn't you finish it? No, I didn't.


Don't you want this? Not at all.
Won't you be mad at us? Not in the least.
Aren't you going to go? Not right now.
Who took my book? Not I.

No
We use ‘no’ in many different ways.
When ‘no’ is used to show the quantity of something, it can mean ‘not any’:
‘There are no seats left.’
‘No new students have joined the class since last term.’
‘No’ can also be used with a comparative adjective:
‘It’s no worse than before,’
‘There were no less than 50 applicants for the position.’
‘No’ is not usually used before an adjective. But we do sometimes use ‘no’ with the word ‘good.’
‘I tried hard, but it was no good, I didn’t pass the test.’
‘I did my best, but it was no good, I didn't get the job.’
Another common idiomatic use of ‘no’ is with ‘ing’ forms of the verb:
‘Remember, no talking during the test.’
‘No swimming until the storm has passed.’
