Either or Neither
Either and neither
One of the tricky things about either and neither is knowing if they should be followed by singular or plural nouns and verbs.
We use either and neither when we are talking about two things.
Either=One or the other.
-Would you like tea or coffee? Either, I don't mind. (You can give me tea or coffee I have no preference).
Neither=Not one and not the other,
-Would you like ham or beef in your sandwich? Neither, I am vegeterian. (I don't want ham and I don't want beef).
We use either with a singular noun. (Either car).
We use either with a plural noun. (Either of the cars).
We use a singular verb with either. (Either day is fine for me).
We use neither with a singular noun. (Neither house).
We use a singular verb with neither. (Neither day was suitable).
