Synonyms of "Nothing" and their differences

Q: assume nothing ve presume nothing arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "Assume nothing" sounds natural, but I don't hear "presume nothing" very often.
When police detectives start an investigation, they assume nothing. Anything is possible, and all people are suspects.

Presume = "I guess without strong evidence"
I presume you have met Mary before, right?
And you can put it in the negative:
I don't presume you've met Mary before. メイレーさんにあったことない「かな」 (here かな = presume)つまり一応聞くけど、答えは既に分かっている(とここあたりがある)
Q: i have nothing 'with' me ve i have nothing 'on' me arasındaki fark nedir?
A: I have nothing with me = I brought nothing with me.

I have nothing on me = I am naked.

I don't have one on me. = I do not have that item in my possession right now.


EDIT(you closed the question so I couldn't answer below): in the video, the policeman is asking him if he has drugs. When he replies "I have nothing on me," in this case it means that he doesn't have any drugs in his possession.
Q: I gave him nothing to drink. ve I didn't give him something to drink. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Well it's the same, sorry i read it again and now i know what you mean
Q: nothing ve none arasındaki fark nedir?
A: In a lot of instances they can can mean the same thing, but they are used in different ways depending on what you want to say.

Nothing is a noun so it can be used as a title for someone else "You are nothing," and it can be used as what someone posses "You have nothing."

None on the other hand is used as a measurement
"How many apples do you have?"
"I have none."
Here, "none" is not what he has, but how much of something he has. None is equal to 0 in measurement.
None basically means "not one", so if you insert that into a sentence, you can see if it would be grammatically correct to put none in the sentence.

Hope this helped!
Q: I love nothing. ve I don't love anything. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: They are the same. :) The second is much more natural - you'd have to be waxing poetic to say "I love nothing".

Q: Bunu İngilizce (Birleşik Krallık) da nasıl dersiniz? I doing nothing I search for job whole day. does this sound native
A: I'm not doing anything. I'm searching for a job all day.

It would sound better saying:

Q: Bunu İngilizce (ABD) da nasıl dersiniz? i'm tired, I don't do nothing today
A: This is called a "double negative." While it is grammatically incorrect, normally, it is structured like this: "I'm tired, I DIDN'T do nothing today." Again, this is very grammatically incorrect, and is associated with low-brow culture. I'm not adding judgement-- it is fine to use among a peer group who uses this kind of speech. Just know that to the majority of people, it sounds very uneducated.

"I'm tired. I didn't do ANYTHING today." This is grammatically correct and is the vastly used option.
