English[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

no +‎ one

Pronoun[edit]

noone

  1. Nonstandard spelling of no one.
Usage notes[edit]
  • Noone is formed in parallel to the formation of nobody, anyone, and everyone, but it is often considered incorrect because of the doubled vowels creating a temptation to read and pronounce it as "noon" (/nuːn/).
  • American users (COCA) prefer the spelling no one to either noone or no-one by more than 500 to 1.
  • UK users (BNC) prefer no-one to noone 50 to 1 and no one to noone 12 to 1.
