A) Are you planning to go somewhere on vacation?

B) Are you planning to go anywhere on vacation?

Is there any difference between the two?

  • The "planning" and "on vacation" don't affect the basic usage, which is more straightforwardly featured in Do you want to go somewhere / anywhere?, Can I get you something / anything? Are you with someone / anyone? Offhand I can't think of any context where the some / any choice would affect the meaning of any of my examples, but there are many other contexts where you can only use one or the other. And although both forms are valid with, say, He will eat any food and He will eat some food, there's definitely a significant difference in meaning with those. Dec 12, 2021 at 13:59

  • Thank you for answering and I'm sorry for my misinterpretation last time.
