Clarification of haber/ tener

Hola,

Are we saying here that the use of 'de' is optional?

Gracias,


Bear in mind, though, that when this is used with the verb tener or haber, then you can add "de". For example:

Esa historia no tiene nada de particular. 

No había nada de irónico en mis comentarios.

Hola Stuart

Sorry we missed this question from you from a long time ago.

The answer is it is optional, so you can say:

Esa historia no tiene nada particular / nada de particular.

That story is not at all special.

No había nada irónico/ nada de irónico en mis comentarios.

There was no irony intended at all in my comments.


Saludos
