    will either not ... or

    Are these sentences correct with the given meanings:

    1-I will either not go to the theater or not watch the late show.

    (I'll do one, but not both.)

    2-I will either not watch the film or the football match.

    (I will watch one, but not both.)

    3-I will either not talk to Mark or to Dean.

    (I will talk to one, but not the both of them.)

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: will either not ... or

    This is an odd exercise. No one would ever say a sentences like this.

    1. I'll either go to the theater or watch the late show.

    2. I will either watch the film or the football match.

    3. I will either talk to Mark or Dean.
