|Rank of this word in the English language, from analyzing texts from Project Gutenberg.|
- Not any person: no one, nobody.
- Not any (of previously mentioned things).
- I asked if there were any pieces of fruit left, but he said there were none remaining.
Although uncountable nouns require none to be conjugated with a singular verb, e.g., None of the team plays well., the pronoun can be either singular or plural in most other cases, e.g., Fifty people applied for the position, but none were accepted., and None was qualified.
However, where the given or implied context is clearly singular or plural, then a matching verb makes better sense:
- None of these men is my father.
- None of those options is the best one.
- None of these people are my parents.
