To express agreement, we can use :

– I agree

– I go with you

– I’m with you

– I think so

– That’s a good idea

– That sounds good

– That’s right

– That’s true

– That’s OK

To express Disagreement, we can use:

– I disagree

– I don’t agree

– That’s wrong

– I don’t think so

– I think that’s not a good idea

– etc.

Kalau neither … nor… digunakan untuk menggabungkan dua kalimat yang sama – sama negative, contohnya:

– Rudy doesn’t like Physics

– Rudy doesn’t like Math

Jika kedua kalimat tersebut digabungkan menggunakan neither … nor … maka menjadi:

Rudy likes neither Physics nor Math

– The driver wasn’t safe in the accident

– The passengers weren’t safe in the accident

Jika dua kalimat tersebut digabungkan, maka menjadi:

Neither the driver nor the passengers were safe in the accident

Sedangkan either … or … digunakan dalam kalimat yang maksudnya kalau tidak ini, ya yang itu.


Ann: What does Merlin play?

Leo: She plays either guitar or piano

Bob   : I want to subscribe magazine?

Dicky : What magazine?

Bob   : I’m still in doubt. I will subscribe either “Hello” or “Contact”

“Neither” and “Nor”

“Neither” is a singular adjective and can be paired with “nor” in a sentence. “Neither” is never paired with “or”. When using “neither” in a sentence, you are saying not the first object and not the second object are behaving in a certain way. The nouns/pronouns are in agreement with one another. “Nor” can also be used independently when negating the second part of two negative clauses.

  • Neither Corie nor Bob went to the play. (Corie isn’t going to the play. Bob isn’t going to the play.)
  • She said, “I don’t like broccoli.” I said, “Neither do I.” [Neither is used here because she doesn’t like broccoli, and I don’t like broccoli. (You may hear people say,”Me neither,” this is colloquial and not grammatically correct. You wouldn’t say, “Me don’t like broccoli.”)]
  • She didn’t want to sing, nor did she want to dance.

“Either” and “Or”

“Either” is also a singular adjective. It means one or the other, but not both. “Either” expresses one noun/pronoun doing one thing and the other noun/pronoun doing another; in this way it is a “positive” word because what is occurring is true. “Either” can be paired with “or”, but not “nor”.

  • She wanted to paint either a landscape or a self-portrait. (She wanted to paint one or the other, but not both.)
  • I can’t remember if either Georgia or Julia wanted a doll for Christmas. (One of the girls wanted a doll, but not both.)
