no brother/no brothers
Are both sentences correct?If so, is there any difference in meaning? Which one is more natural or common?
1.I have no brother.
2.I have no brothers.
According to Practical English Usage by Swan, "no" can be followed by a singular or plural noun.
Re: no brother/no brothers
Both are possible,but the second is more natural. I'd use the first if I were denying mylink to a brother that existed.
