    bouth/neither/either.

    When is it necessary to use " of " with "both/neither/either" ?
    Thanks.

    Re: bouth/neither/either.

    We use both/neither when we want to emphasise that something was or wasn't associated with two people:
    Both of us hated it.
    Here, the use of 'both' stresses that two people hated it, giving it extra force.
