Dear Teachers,Emotion: smile

I said to a native English speaker “I can't remember anything with no classification.” My sentence is wrong. I can’t correct myself if I don’t know what the mistake is. Please, tell me why I lost the clarity of the idea I tried to convey.

When I encounter a new sentence in my English study, I like writing it in the related chapter of my grammar books because I can't remember anything with no classification.

Thank you in advance,

Hi,

When I encounter a new sentence in my English study, I like writing it in the related chapter of my grammar books because I can't remember anything with no classification.

It's not a natural-sounding sentence. More natural would be

I can't remember anything without classification.

or I can't remember anything without (first) classifying it.

or I can remember nothing without classifying it (first).

I'd say that the unnaturalness is caused by the combination

...not .... anything ... no ... It sounds to the ear like a traditional 'double negative error', although I wouldn't say it is.

A bientot, Clive

There is a sidewalk sale on St-Laurent Street. The street is closed to the cars. Food stands on the street at every 10 meters: mangoes cut in flower shape, tacos, Chinese noodle, European sausages, pizza…[D]Emotion: stick out tongue
