Consider this exchange between two people that I saw on TV: A has told B that none of B's colleagues like B. B comes back with a question and gets an answer:
B: Who doesn't like me?
Why did A say everyone? Should A not have said no one instead? Is it not the same as the choice between these sentences? :
Everyone doesn't like you.
No one likes you.
Interestingly enough, I found 48 hits for "everyone doesn't" in COCA, for instance:
- Everyone does n't care.
(If it were me, I would've said Not everyone cares or No one cares, depending on what I'd meant to say.)
- Everyone doesn't have that luxury of another room.
- Tell me again why everyone doesn't just network into this meeting?
Now, what's the story here? Are both options possible?
