    None / noone / no one

    Okay I'm totally confused about this. I've been thinking until yesterday that "no one" is nonsense, but after seeing and hearing it on the TV I decided to ask you, English teachers!

    What's correct or what's the difference?

    "None is going to school tomorrow"

    "Noone is going to school tomorrow"

    "No one is going to school tomorrow"

    Any help will be appreciated, thanks!

    No one or no-one are both possible, they mean 'no person, nobody'.

    You could use "None are...", as in "I asked all the children, and none are going to school tomorrow".

    Re: None / noone / no one

    Okay thanks!

    But what is the difference then? And how do I pronunciate it?

    [Non] is going to school

    or

    [Nou-one] is going to school

    Thanks in advance!
