Student or Learner
Let's assume that I am a teacher who warms the students in the classroom like that:
1. I don't want anybody to speak in the classroom without permission.
2. I want nobody to speak in the classroom without permission.
3. I want nobody not to speak in the classroom without permission.
I think we can utter properly number 1, but I would like to ask whether we can use number 2 and 3 instead of the 1?
#1 is fine but I would prefer the word order to be "I don't want anybody in the classroom to speak without permission".
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
I find all of the suggestions unnatural.
I'd say something like, "If you have something to say, please raise your hand / put your hand up."
