Apart from the spelling, what is the difference between 'either' and 'neither'?
2 years ago
Either and neither can be used in a few different ways, and to mean a few different things. In most cases, neither means "not either." When used as an adjective either means "one or the other of two people or things," and neither means "not one or the other of two people or things." In other words, neither means "not either." When used as a pronoun either means "the one or the other." Neither means "not the one and not the other" or "not either." When used as a conjunction either is used with or to indicate choices or possibilities. Neither is used with nor to indicate two or more people, things, actions, etc., about which something is not true. When used as an adverb either means "in addition" and is used after a negative statement. In informal speech either and neither are used in the phrase me either or me neither to say that you agree with a negative statement someone has made. These two phrases mean exactly the same thing.
