    somebody = someone (in formal language usually used in place of somebody) - talking about a person that is unknown or unspecified
    somebody else = someone else (in formal language usually used in place of somebody else) - talking about another person
    anybody = anyone (in formal language usually used in place of anybody) - talking about any person; used mostly in questions and negatives
