What is the difference between "someone" and "somebody" ? Hi, dear Italki community! Please, help me to find out this difference between using these following types of pronouns: someone, somebody, anyone, anybody, no one, nobody! Thank you very much for your answers!

Hi Alex! In truth, there's no real difference. "Someone" is more formal, so if you're speaking/writing formally, I'd advice you to use the "one" constructions. Apart from that you're good with either :) Hope that helps, -Mike
