    Dear Forum Users,

    Look at these sentences:

    1. 'A' is not a bird.
    2. 'B' is not a bird.

    I can definitely say that 'A' is not a bird and 'B' is not a bird either. BUT can I say:

    A is not a bird and B is also not a bird.?

    Thank you very much.

    Yes you can.
    More natural would be, "A is not a bird and neither is B."; "Neither A nor B are birds."
