1. Hi. Can you please tell me if this sentence is gramatically correct:

He knew so many English words no Englishman does.

I'm looking for different ways (preferably short or colloquial, if there are any, variants) to end this sentence. I would appreciate if you give several other examples.

2. Is no Englishman a subject of the subordinate clause?

3. Also, will it be correct to use the pronoun none? :

He knew so many English words none Englishman does.

Roman MakarovHe knew so many English words no Englishman does.

No. There are two main clauses and no conjunction. It does not make any sense.

Perhaps you meant this.

No Englishman knows as many words as he did.

Roman Makarov2. Is no Englishman a subject of the subordinate clause?

no is a quantifier. It modifies Englishman. The noun phrase no Englishman is the subject of the verb does. It is a main clause, not a dependent clause.

No.

Will this sentence make sense? :
