I am a bit confused about a sentence I came across in an anki deck:
I know that that 誰 means "who" and も means "also", but the translation it gives me is:
"No one knows that story."
Someone please explain.
Thank you n_n
used with a negative verb 誰も means no one or nobody.
誰もその卑わいな冗談を笑わなかった。No one laughed at the obscene joke.
Used with a regular verb (positive?) it can mean anyone, anybody, everybody or everyone.
誰もがその話を知っている。Everyone knows that story.
誰もそのことに異存［異論］はない。Everyone agrees about that. （No one objects to that.)
here are a number of examples http://eow.alc.co.jp/誰もその/UTF-8/?ref=sa
