    Cool nothing

    Hi,

    I saw nothing. --> Nothing is an adverb? a noun?

    Nothing good for today. --> Nothing is an adjective?

    The word "nothing" is the object of "saw". It is a noun. (The other one is not a sentence.)

    I am not sure what that means, but perhaps it is an adjective there.
