    about her/ on her

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I may use equipollently the following two sentences?

    She had no money about her.

    She had no money on her.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Re: about her/ on her

    "equipollently"???

    Both are usable and both mean approximately the same - has she any money?

    Re: about her/ on her

    Hi Anglika,

    Thank you for your helpful reply.

    There are a few articulated arguments in favor of the mentioned above eccentric word:

    equipollent (adj.) equal in force, power, effectiveness, or significance; equivalent

    equipollently (adv.) = equivalently

    equipollent: Definition from Answers.com

    Regards,
