Which is the correct way of agreeing with a negation? We were taught that a negative verb can be followed only by EITHER, and that such sentences never take ALSO/TOO/AS WELL there.
E.g.: I don't like fish EITHER. (NOT: I ALSO don't like fish. (OR) I don't like fish, TOO / AS WELL).
E.g. This rule doesn't explain the newly-discovered tendency EITHER. (NOT: This rule ALSO doesn't explain the newly-discovered tendency. (OR) This rule doesn't explain the newly-discovered tendency, TOO / AS WELL).
Do I understand it right or have I got it wrong somewhere? Can we never use ALSO / TOO / AS WELL with negative verbs? Are the examples in brackets incorrect, or do we simply use them in different situations?
Thank you so much for your help in advance!
You have got it right.
