Can we say: she doesn´t know anybody??
Please provide some context and background, DUDAYSABRAS.
She´s new in the office, so she doesn´t know anybody.
This is formulation is perfectly correct and seems natural to me
Thanks a lot !!
Your grammar is perfectly correct, but logically lacking.
If you mean "in the office," say so. I sincerely doubt that there's anybody alive who doesn't know anybody.
"In the office" does need to be stated or at least implied, but not necessarily in the same sentence. If it is clear from the context that by "anybody," you mean "anybody in the office," that should be adequate. But SDG is perfectly right that if you haven't made this clear, you need to.
Thank you very much!!
Separate names with a comma.
