Les résultats… Jusqu'ici, il n'y en a point.

I suppose that the word "point" in this specific sense is not used nowadays, so should I convert it into "pas" or "rien" in this sentence?

  • Doesn't the answer to this question on ne... point answer your question?

Point which is indeed outdated, even in regional usage, can be replaced by pas here while keeping the sentence very same meaning:

Les résultats… Jusqu'ici il n'y en a pas.

If you want to use rien, you might write:

Les résultats… Jusqu'ici, rien !

  • Thanks. So the translation should be something like "So far, there isn't any of those"? Commented Jun 19, 2016 at 0:01
  • Probably but the lack of context, as often happens, doesn't help figuring out what kind of results this is about.
