Instructions

Click on the words at the bottom and drag them into the empty boxes of the sentence to complete it.
 

We use SOMETHING for things
SOMEBODY or SOMEONE for people
SOMEWHERE for places.

We can also make compounds with ANY- and NO-:

ANYTHING, ANYBODY, ANYONE, ANYWHERE
NOTHING  /nʌθɪŋ/ NOBODY /nəʊbɒdɪ/ NO ONE /nəʊ wʌn/ NOWHERE /nəʊweə*/

The same rules that apply for SOME and ANY also apply for somebody/anybody, etc:
(you can read the rules on this other lesson: Some, Any, No)

He never does anything bad.
I need somewhere to sleep.
I know someone who could help us.
Do you know anyone who could help us?
I haven't got anything to eat = I've got nothing to eat

 
The plural of SOMEBODY or SOMEONE is "some people", the plural of SOMETHING is "some things", the plural of SOMEWHERE is "some places".

- There's somebody at the door
- There are some people waiting outside
- Look, I've got something for you, open it!
- I wanted to buy some things but now I can't remember what
- He lives somewhere near here
- You can find palm trees in some places near here

You never use a preposition before compounds with -WHERE

- She must be hiding in the mountains She must be hiding somewhere
- I'm not going to your house I'm not going anywhere / I'm going nowhere
- Are you going to the bar? Are you going anywhere?
 
You can also make compounds with EVERY-

- Everything = all the things
- Everybody/everyone = all the people
- Everywhere = in/at/to/on all the places

Notice that the verb is always singular
 
- Everything was quiet = All the things were quiet
- Everybody needs somebody = All the people need some person
- I looked for it everywhere = I looked for it in all the places
- Everybody is happy
