Is there any difference between the words "someone" and "somebody" ("anyone" and "anybody")?

I wonder if they are synonyms.

Yes, they have the same meaning.

You can say:

There is somebody/someone waiting for you at the snack-bar.

Does anybody/ anyone here speak English?

That's all!! Emotion: wink
I see.

As far as I understand I should also use anybody/anyone in the sentences like this:

"There is not anybody/anyone waiting for me at the snack-bar".

Thank you very much!

I Think it is much appropriate to use nobody/noone. "There is nobody/noone waiting for me at the snackbar."

Maybe you are right. But I guess it is not so important. The meaning is absolutely the same, isn't it?

FYI (for your information) It is written no one --- two seperate words. ;-)
