Anyone vs Anybody

What is the difference between anyone and anybody?

 

Anyone or anybody


 

Which one should I use, ‘anyone’ or ‘anybody’?

Have you ever wondered which form is better to use? Here we have some help for you.

The answer is: both are correct and both mean the same.

 

The difference

Usually anyone and anybody can be used interchangeably. However, ‘anybody’ is less formal and ‘anyone’ will suit more formal expressions. You will want to use ‘anyone’ in formal English or in writing whereas ‘anybody’ will sound natural in everyday informal English.
