The Spanish indefinite pronouns

Some of the most important Spanish indefinite pronouns 

Alguien

Alguien (somebody/anybody) is used in sentences to refer to a person.

He visto alguien en tu casa hoy.

(I’ve seen someone in your house today.)

Algo 

Algo“something/anything” is the equivalent pronoun used to refer to a thing.

Tengo algo para tu hermana (I have something for your sister.)

Nadie

The negative form of alguien is nadie (no one) .

The negative form of algo is nada  “nothing”.

In Spanish you will have to use double negatives, unlike English:

No he visto a nadie en tu casa.  (I haven’t seen anyone in your house.)

No tengo nada para ti (I have nothing for you).

Alguno/a

Alguno/a (some, any) shortens to algún before a masculine, singular noun, and varies in gender and number according to the noun it refers to alguno, alguna, algunos, algunas:

¿Hay algún bar en la ciudad? (Is there any bar in the city?)

Ninguno/a

Ninguno/a (none, no) shortens to ningún before a masculine, singular noun.

NO hay ningún bar en la ciudad. (There isn’t any bar in the city.)

Mucho/a

Mucho/a also varies in gender and number according to the noun it refers to.

Hay muchos bares en la ciudad.

(There are many bars in the city.)
