No. adj.

  1. Not any; none.

    Let their be no strife between me and thee. Gen. xiii. 8.

    Woman and fool are two hard things to hit,
    For true no meaning puzzles more than wit.

  2. It seems an adjective in these phrases, no longer, no more, no where.

    When we saw that they were no where, we came to Samuel. 1 Sam. x. 14.

    In vain I reach my feeble hands to join
    In sweet embraces; ah! no longer thine.

  3. No one; none; not any one.

    No one who doeth good to those only from whom he expects to receive good, can ever be fully satisfied of his own sincerity. Smalridge's Serm.
