Dear forum members,
A) I recently heard someone say: "It has taken them to the brink of SURVIVAL"
Does this make sense? or was it a slip of the tongue - the usual expression is "Brink of extinction"
B) Can the word NONE be used to mean "there is no food left" eg "There is none left"
This is a phrase i often hear but i don't think you can really say "There is NOT ONE food left", which is what NONE means, yet the alternatives sound long-winded: "There isn't any left" or "There is no food left"
