I am stuck with this sentence:

There is no any reason to use it

In some contexts it's pretty clear which of the two words to use. But another, like the example above, is confusing me. So how would I say it: "no any reason" or "not any reason"?

    You wouldn't normally use any in the first place. Just "There's no reason to use it". If you want to be emphatic, more likely would be "There is absolutely no reason to use it". – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Mar 6 '13 at 17:32

You'd have to say one of these two:

There is not (isn't) any reason for you to do that.


There is (There's) no reason for you to do that.

Many EFL students say "no any", but it's always incorrect in all dialects of English.
