So , Too , Either , Neither


 
 

1. “So and “too”. The words ‘so; and ‘too’ are used combine two positive statements with identical predicates to form a compound sentence. An auxiliary must be included in the second part of the sentence.
However, there is a difference while using ‘so and ‘too’.
-so + auxiliary verb + subject
-subject + auxiliary verb + too
Subject 1 + to be/verb+ object/complement+and+so+aux+subject 2
Example:
Snow White was beautiful
The Queen was beautiful
(Snow White was beautiful and so was The Queen)
Examples:
  I likes playing guitar. Fandy also likes playing guitar.
- I likes playing guitar and so does Fandy.
- I likes playing guitar and Fandy does too.
2. TOO
Subject 1 + to be/verb+ object/complement+and+subject 2+aux+too
Example:
Snow White was beautiful
The Queen was beautiful
(Snow White was beautiful and The Queen was too)
2. ‘Either and ‘Neither‘. The word ‘either and ‘neither’ are used to combine two negative statements with identical predicates to form a compound sentence. The predicate is not repeated completely in the second part of the compound sentence. An auxiliary must be included in the second part of the sentence.
There is a difference while using ‘either’ and ‘neither’.
-subject + auxiliary verb + not + either
-neither + auxiliary verb + subject
Either
Subject 1 + verb+ object +and+neither+aux+subject 2
Example:
Hima can not sing a song
Shela can not sing a song
(Hima can not sing a song and neither can Shela)
Neither
Subject 1 + verb+ object+and+ subject 2+aux+not+either
Hima can not sing a song
Shela can not sing a song
(Hima can not sing a song and Shela can not either )
Examples:
-Jeremy is not doing his homework now. Aji is also not doing his homework.
-Jeremy is not doing his homework and Aji is not either.
-Jeremy is not doing his homework and neither is Aji.

 

Unit 39. too/either so am I/neither do I etc.
