Can you give me some/any paint?
Dear italki users,
Could you help me with these sentence, please?
The grammar rule says that it should be 'any' in questions:
- Can you give me any paint?
And 'some' is an affirmative sentence:
- I can give you some paint
But I've noticed that people often use both 'any' and 'some' in question. My guess is that they both can be used in questions but the meaning would be slightly different.
Can you give me any paint? - Can you give me any amount of paint?
Can you give me some paint? - Con you give me some amount of paint?
Is my guess correct?
