    both

    Hi,

    For example, I am doing shopping and I see a pair of shoes and a t-shirt. Can I say something else?

    I want to get both of them. (That's OK)

    I want both. (Is that OK?)

    Do we have to use ''both of''?

    NOT TEACHER


    Well I think it is ok, if you say 'I would like to have/having both' that is also ok and even here 'both of' can also be used.

    Re: both

    Yes, you could say "both" or "both of them." But not "both them."
