Hello: could you help me?
My question is this:
Can I use neither in negatie statements? For instance in the sentence:
I didn`t neither like the food nor the music in the party.
I don't like the food. Neither do I like the music.
And of course, one can't always hear the punctuation that clearly Especially not at a party
So, in spoken English, you may very well hear 'neither' liberally sprinkled near negatives.
It's the same as when you use 'never': I had never been here before. (One negative, 'never'; not both 'never' and the verb.)
