Hey! I have a question concerning pronouns.

Like if we say someone we used to know now changes compeletely in various ways, can we say: She's not her anymore? Or she's no longer her? or She's her no more?
Are these kinds of saying correct? And which one is the best?
Thanks a lot guys!!

    Are you talking about in French or any English? Either way, none of those make sense.

    in French : elle n'est plus la même
    ou à la rigueur : elle n'est plus elle-même
    in English : she isn't the same / she is no longer the same
    she isn't her same self (I think) :)

    Euh, why isn't it...Or how to express in this kind of situation? Like someone's not the guy you remembered. Make it as brief as possible please. Thanks:)

    You were close. You can say
    she's not herself anymore
    although that's not too clear. Better to say
    It's like she's not herself anymore
    or, for the closest translation
    She's like a different person now
    or
    It's like she's a completely different person
    I would use the last one.
