    So (negative) he

    Hello,

    Consider the sentence:

    Mary wouldn't do that, neither would Mark. (1)
    Mark wouldn't either. (2)
    him (Mark) neither. (3)
    Mark wouldn't too. (4)
    So wouldn't Mark. (5)

    Are these sentences correct? I'm speacially in doubt with #3 and 5.

    Thank you.

    1 and 2 are OK. 4 and 5 don't work. 3 is a little odd. You will hear "Me neither" (and "Me either" from some people) but I don't find it natural using anything except the first person object pronoun.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
