You can't use 'any' before a singular.

Of course you can, Anon.

Is any person here a grammarian?

What I'd like to understand better is why use 'has' in a postive sentence and 'have' in a negative sentence. For example:

She has red hair, she does not have black hair.
The woman has black hair, she does not have red hair.
The man has a brown moustache, he does not have a beard.
The girl has curly hair, she does not have straight hair.
The boy does not have long hair, he has short hair.

Thanks!
When you form the negative, you use the verb "to do."

You use the form of the verb "do" that is correct for the person, number, and tense. She does, we did, I do, etc. Then you use the main form of the main verb - the infinitive, without the "to."

To swim: She swims, she does not swim.

To go: We went, we did not go

To see: I see, I do not see.

Hi,

Have you learned yet how to make a Present Tense sentence that is negative?

For example, can you make this example negative?

Mary cooks dinner.

Best wishes. Clive
