No-one or nobody, blotting-paper, and maybe nowadays in sentence one.
One of my friends means one among my friends. For jobs, use a : I am a doctor, an electrician.
In sentence three, I think word should be singular. Spelling for always.

First of all I thank all my friends who try to answer the questions. In sentence three I think words is correct and it refers to what someone says( speech) . Best regards

Sorry, word in the singular is correct.

Although 'words' may seem to be correct, the expression, 'to be true to your/one's word' is an idiom, so gerondif is correct. Sherry
