Assunto:  Re: Me neither; either
 
Mensagem:  Hello Thiago, "Me neither" means "eu também não". Ex: "I don't like soup." "Me neither". We can also say "neither do I" but here we must pay close attention to the auxiliary verb we have in the sentence. Ex: "I didn't see her yesterday." "Neither DID I." "Me either" is not correct as far as I know. The correct way to say "eu também" is "me too" or "so do I". Ex: "I watched the film 'Carandiru' this weekend." "Me too" or "So DID I". "EITHER" also means 'any', 'it doesn't matter which'. Ex: There are two planes leaving for L.A. You can catch either. "EITHER" also shows that there is a choice to be made: Ex.: You can read EITHER the book OR the magazine. I hope I've helped you. []s Marcia
