Pronouns in negative sentence

Postby Hakan » Thu Mar 07, 2013 11:53 pm

Are these sentences correct ?

We can not start the meeting because not everybody has arrived.

They have no house. But they lost not everything in the earthquake.

Thank you

#1, yes.

#2, no, but you could say e.g. '...not eveything was lost...'
