    never and no one

    Hello,

    I would like to know if we can use 'nobody, nothing, no one,...etc' with never.

    -We are going where nobody has never been before.

    -No one can never know that.

    Thank you...

    No, that's an incorrect type of double negative. Use "ever" where you have "never."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
