    None

    I know what the meaning of "none" is in the following sentence but I can't understand the meaning of the whole sentence. Can one paraphrase the sentence for me?

    He seems none the worse for the experience.

    Re: None

    5jj's link seems to put it in simple enough words.



    none the worse (for something)


    not damaged or hurt despite something. It was cold and windy during the parade but we were none the worse for the weather.

    Re: None

    I think I have not been clear enough. That might be simple but not for me as a non-native speaker.

    Would you please be kind enough to translate ( intralingual translation ) the meaning of the sentence which I posted a few minutes ago?

    Re: None

    I need the intralingual translation of the sentence which I myself mentioned and not other sentences.
    My example is this: He seems none the worse for the experience.

    Re: None

    The dictionary example tells you we were not damaged or hurt by the weather.

    See if you can apply that knowledge to your own sentence.

    We shouldn't have to do everything for you.
