    Question is not vs. is not

    Hi there!

    Could you please explain the difference between "there is not" and "there is no"
    For example, There is not any bread left
    There is no bread left

    Think of other examples, not necessarily those above, where the two expressions substitue one another.

    Thanks in advance

    Re: is not vs. is not

    He is not superman: Current meaning, He = not superman
    He is no superman: He has no capacity to be superman.

    Those sound barely well. You had better look forward to seeing from native speakers.
