    I have no memory of doing that =? I don't/can't remember doing that

    Hello everybody!

    Does "I have no memory of swimming in the sea yesterday" mean "I don't/can't remember swimming in the sea yesterday"?

    I think so but I am not sure 100 %.

    Thank you.

    Yes, but "I have no memory of" hints at a loss of memory (illness/medical condition) as the possible cause.

    Is "I have no memory of" synonymous with "I don't/can't remember"?

    Jacek1, teechar answered your question in the first word of his response in post #2. He then went on to give additional nuance information.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
