Decir generalmente se traduce por say en estilo directo. Normalmente no lleva un complemento de persona pero si se menciona a quién se está dirigiendo el hablante, el complemento de persona tiene que ir precedido por la preposición to: "Ya son las tres", dije "It's already three o'clock," I said "¡Qué tiempo más malo!" Eso fue lo único que me dijo "What awful weather!" That's all he said to me ► En estilo indirecto, decir se puede traducir por say cuando simplemente se cuenta lo que alguien ha dicho. Si say lleva complemento de persona, este se coloca después del complemento directo: Dijo que se tenía que marchar He said he had to leave Me dijo algo que no entendí He said something to me that I didn't understand ► Decir se traduce por tell cuando se {informa} o se {ordena hacer algo}. Suele llevar un objeto de persona sin la preposición to: Me dijo que tenía una entrevista de trabajo He told me he had a job interview ¡Te he dicho que no lo toques! I told you not to touch it! ► Hay algunos usos idiomáticos en los que decir se traduce por tell aunque no lleva complemento de persona. Por ejemplo: to tell the truth (decir la verdad) y to tell a lie (decir una mentira). Otros verbosSi decir va acompañado de un calificativo en español, a menudo se puede traducir al inglés por otros verbos que no sean say o tell: "Lo he perdido todo", dijo entre sollozos "I've lost everything," she sobbed Dijo con voz ronca algo sobre necesitar un médico He croaked something about needing a doctor Para otros usos y ejemplos ver la entrada Para otras expresiones con el participio, ver dicho.

    NINGUNO Adjetivo Se traduce por any si el verbo va en forma negativa y por no si el verbo va en forma afirmativa. En general es más frecuente usar not + any (salvo como sujeto, posición en la que se debe emplear no), ya que no se utiliza normalmente con carácter más enfático: No tengo ninguna pregunta I haven't got any questions No se ha cometido ningún delito No crime has been committed No fui a ningún sitio I didn't go anywhere No hay ningún peligro There is no danger, There isn't any danger Hay que tener en cuenta que el sustantivo que sigue a any va en plural si es contable, como en el primer ejemplo. ► Con palabras que poseen un sentido negativo tales como hardly, without y never hay que utilizar any: Conseguí hacerlo sin ninguna ayuda I managed to do it without any help Pronombre El uso de los pronombres any y none sigue las mismas pautas que los adjetivos any y no, ya que se emplea preferiblemente la forma any con verbos en forma negativa y none si la forma es afirmativa, e igualmente se prefiere la forma none para la posición de sujeto: No quiero ninguno de estos I don't want any of these No me gusta ninguno de ellos I don't like any of them No queda ninguno There are none left No va a venir ninguno de sus amigos None of her friends is o are coming Si el verbo va detrás de none puede ir tanto en singular como en plural. ► En lugar de none y any, si ninguno se refiere a dos personas o cosas se emplea neither y either, siguiendo las mismas reglas anotadas anteriormente: Ninguno de los dos equipos está jugando bien Neither of the teams o Neither team is playing well No conozco a ninguno de los dos I don't know either of them El verbo va en singular si sigue a neither.

    jugar 3. TODO ► Para traducir el adjetivo todo con el sentido de en su totalidad se usa all, seguido del sustantivo en singular y sin determinante: Se pasó toda la tarde viendo la tele He spent all afternoon watching TV ► Con el mismo sentido anterior, también se puede traducir por whole o entire, este último es más enfático. En este caso, el indefinido tiene que ir acompañado de un sustantivo contable en singular y precedido por un determinante: Se pasó toda la tarde viendo la tele He spent the whole o the entire afternoon watching TV ► Todos se traduce por every cuando se hace hincapié en todos y cada uno de los individuos de un grupo de personas o cosas y también cuando se habla de acciones repetidas: Todos los niños deben llevar el uniforme del colegio Every child must wear school uniform Salimos a cenar todos los viernes We go out for dinner every Friday El sustantivo que sigue a every va en singular y nunca lleva determinante. El verbo va también en singular. ► Cuando todos se emplea para generalizar, se traduce por all. En este caso el sustantivo que sigue a all no lleva determinante: Todos los alemanes saben hablar inglés All Germans can speak English ► Todos también se traduce por all para referirse al conjunto de individuos de un grupo pero, a diferencia de every, sin dar importancia a los elementos. En este caso el sustantivo lleva determinante y va en plural, como el verbo: Todos los libros de la biblioteca eran antiguos All the books in the library were old
