Abstract.Here we point out the following consequences of a previous result of mine. Let $V$ be a Hausdorff and locally convex topological vector space without any continuous norm and $\vert \ \vert _F$ an $F$-norm defining the topology of $V$. Then there is no pair $(U,f)$ with $U$ an open neighborhood of $0\in V$ and $f: U \to \mathbb{R}$ a real analytic function such that $f(0) = 0$ and the sets $\{f < c\}_{c>0}$ form a fundamental system of open neighborhoods of $0$ in $V$. Furthermore, there is no strictly increasing function $g: [0,+\infty ) \to [0,+\infty )$ such that $g\circ \vert \ \vert _F: V \to [0,+\infty )$ is real analytic.
