How are these pronouns placed and used in AmE?


Anybody - Means any one from (say) a Group.
Nobody - Means none from a Group.
These two were pretty obvious, Yes.

Now, everyone and everybody actually means the same. It means Every Person.

However, the difference comes in usage. Everyone is considered a bit formal while Everybody is more casual.

Hope this helped.

    Note all three have "one" and "body" versions: "anyone", "anybody", "everyone", "everybody", "no one", "nobody". ("no one" is written as two words because otherwise the two "o"s in row would confuse the pronunciation.) Both versions of each mean the same thing. – Jay Dec 31 '14 at 14:21
