If someone says something negative and we agree with them, we can`t use either of them. If someone says something positive and we agree with them, we can use it. To say that something someone said is true for you too, you can simply say, “Me too.” To say that a negative statement also applies to you, you can say: “Me neither.” In such situations, we sometimes use both in one way or another with pronouns and auxiliary treatments. The following table describes how you can do this. To say that A is or does the same thing as B, we can use the subject for affirmative sentences and not + auxiliary subject + for negative sentences. 4A: “I cannot forgive them for what happened.” B: “I can`t forgive them either. Exercise Now answer questions with expressions in one way or another or in a short answer, depending on what is true for you. After so/neither we use the same mode of help or modality as in the first sentence: to be, to do, to have, to have, to want, to want, etc. Neither / nor a negative word, like no. For this reason, neither should be affirmative. After adding a negative idea, we can add another negative idea using the phrase “neither me nor” or “I am not either”. So and neither of the two answers can be very difficult.
Let`s just focus on what we say if we agree with someone. .. . 8A: “Thou has not told the truth.” B: “You didn`t make yourself either.” The structure “that`s how I do it” or “I am” is used to complete the sentence before. It uses the same auxiliary treatment as in the previous sentence. 3A: “Sam won`t help us.” B: “Scottywon not Scotty doesn`t make Scotty. 5A: “I drink too much coffee.” B: “ISo bin also INeither do I.” 2A: “I`m very thirsty.” B: “Too I amSo bin ISo do I.” . . .

Mary sings beautifully and so does her sister. 12. “I had never seen so much food in my life.” “Me neither.” 7Ann will be there, and his sister will also be his sister. If there is no adjuvant or modal in the first sentence, we use do/does for the present and did for the past. Try these multiple choice questions. What`s the right answer if you agree? Instructions Find errors in sentences. Write the sentences correctly.
We must also remember that the verb in the statement must be consistent with the verb in the answer: 10A: “I would really like to go.” B: “So ISo INeither would be I.” Another way of saying that A is or does the same thing as B is the use of too or either at the end of the sentence. We also use for affirmative sentences and either for negative sentences…. 6A: “Mom was very proud of us.” B: “And so dadtoo was dadso dadso was.” I am tired.
