    Cool Double negation

    hello everyone,

    Rewrite the following sentence:

    Nobody never saw him without his stick.


    I guess that the double negation is Nobody never, but how could I rewrite correctly?

    Re: Double negation

    Nobody ever saw him without his stick.

    I would use the passive to say this though: He was never seen without his stick.
