  • ‘Some’ vs. ‘Any’

    Use of ‘some’ and ‘any’

    ‘Some’ and ‘any’ are used to talk about the quantity or amount of something. When using ‘some’ or ‘any’, the exact number is not known, important or explained. ‘Some’ and ‘any’ are quantifiers.

    Some and any can be used when:

    • The exact number is not known.
    • The exact number is not important or relevant.
    • Some and any are used with countable (e.g. plate) and uncountable (e.g. money) nouns.
