    use of "either"

    Is the use of "either" in this sentence correct?

    Examiner would not consider these registrations as invalid, either the applicant’s application.

    Re: use of "either"

    Welcome to the forum, kristy.

    Your sentence is not correct. This is one possibility:

    The examiner would not consider either the registrations or the applicant's application (to be/as) invalid.

    Or perhaps "The examiner would not consider these registrations as invalid, nor the applicant's application." It's a rather strange sentence and I'm not sure I understand what it is trying to say.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
