Эти местоимения стоят перед существительным и отвечают на вопросы: какой?, когда определяют качество, и сколько?, когда определяют количество.


1. Местоимение someобычно употребляется в утвердительных предложениях и соответствует русским словам:

а) какой-то, некоторый – когда определяется качество.

б) несколько, некоторое количество – когда определяется количество.

2. Местоимение anyтакже может определять и качество, и количество и употребляется во всех типах предложений. Оно соответствует русским словам:

а) какой-нибудь, сколько-нибудь – если anyупотребляется в вопросительном предложении:


Do you have any English book?

У тебя есть какая-нибудь английская книга?

Do you have anymoney?

У тебя есть сколько-нибудь денег?


б) никакой, нисколько – если anyупотребляется в отрицательномпредложении, например:

У меня нет никакой английской книги.

в) любой (из) – еслиanyупотребляется в утвердительном предложении, например:


Any of these books is interesting.

Любая из этих книг интересная.

3. Местоимение no является отрицательным и имеет значение:

никакой когда определяется качество,

ни один( из) – когда определяется количество.


Следует помнить, что в английском предложении, в котором есть местоимение no, сказуемое имеет утвердительную форму, но в его русском варианте сказуемое должно иметь отрицательную форму (с частицей не), например:

На столе не было никаких книг.

Ни один ученик не знал ответа на этот вопрос.

4. Местоимение every – используется перед одушевленными и неодушевленными существительными в единственном числе и переводится словами каждый, всякий, например:

Каждый игрок был в лучшей форме.

Исключением является случай, когда за everyстоит числительное с существительным во мн. числе.

I go to Parisevery six weeks or so.

Я езжу в Париж каждыешесть недель или около того.


Производные от « some, any, no, every».

Местоимения some, any, no, every в сочетании со словами body (тело), thing (вещь), one(некто), where (где, куда) и how (как) образуют слова, которые используются самостоятельно, а не как определения перед существительными.

а) в переводе русские частицы -то (some - какой-то), -нибудь(any - какой-нибудь), и ни-(no - никакой) сохраняются почти во всех производных.


б) производные от отрицательного местоимения no делают все предложение отрицательным.
