    What is difference between nobody and no-one?

    Hello, Teachers.

    I have a question.

    What is difference between nobody and no-one?

    I think that they are same, but I haven't trust my English knowledge.

    No difference. They are synonyms. "No one" is most commonly written as two words, but no-one is a variant that it used.

    I wouldn't use a hyphen. No one is much more standard.

    I agree. The worst is "noone". That is clearly wrong.
