Adjective, pronoun or both?

May I check? In this lesson, in different examples I believe aucun/e ... ne is used both as a negative adjective and as a variable negative pronoun? Is this correct?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Aucun/e … ne = None of them (negation)"

Bonjour Andy, No, I'm afraid not - all of the examples in this lesson use aucun(e) as a variable French negative pronoun. Here's an example of aucun(e) as a negative adjective: Aucune fille n'est venue. We know aucune is an adjective because it's followed directly by a noun, in comparison to Aucune des filles n'est venue.
