One French Word A Day – Spring 2022

Day 48 – aucun

The Learning French 100 Day Project – Friday, May 6, 2022

I’ve been studying French on and off for about a year. My interest in the language began when I started reading classical French novels by Balzac, Dumas, Flaubert, Stendhal, and others. I’m also a budding armchair historian of the French Revolution. In 2018/19, I spent Christmas and the New Year in Paris. Bonne Année !!

French is a beautiful, musical, romantic language, … and I’m keen on learning it.

For the next 100 days (all of Spring 2022), I’ll focus daily on a French word and use it in sentences. The results of my efforts will surely be hilarious, peppered with errors, and unequivocally bad French … but you gotta have the freedom to fail.

So, without further ado … let’s learn French! Allons-y!


aucun, aucune (determiner; pronoun) : no; any; none; anyone


Claire ne connaissait aucun mes amis. (Clair didn’t know any of my friends.)
Nous n’avons aucun contrôle sur l’avenir.
(We do not have any control over the future.)
Paul n’a vu aucun autre moyen.
(Paul saw no other way.)
