Using Some and Any
In English the words some and any are
used before plural nouns: some money,
some dollars, any change, etc.
However, it is often possible to leave
out the word some in declarative sentences:
--We have (some) checks.
--Mr. Roberts gives them (some) money.
The word any is usually used in questions
and negations to replace some:
--Do you have any change?
--Do you have some change?
--They don't have any friends
