Talk:Difference between "no" and "not"
I think that there may be a deeper rule here but I can't seem to quite get my brain around it. I think that there may be a difference is what is being negated.
It seems to me that in the "not" cases the verb is the thing thing that is generally being negated, whereas in the "no" cases the noun or whatever is being negated. but I'm not whether this "insight" is either true or consistent and I'm also not sure if it would be useful from a teaching perspective anyway.--Bob M 10:06, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
