This "any" is interpreted as "a little in quantity", so can "any" have the meaning of "a little" like "some"?

keannu, you frequently begin your posts with 'A is interpreted/translated as B', with B presumably representing your English version of a Korean translation from an original English text.It might be a better idea to forget English versions of Korean translations of English words and phrases and just think about the English words in their English context. In your sentence, 'any' means what it means in thousands of other English sentences.
