    Re: NEITHER

    Both are used. Traditionally, the singular was favoured, and may still be favoured in formal contexts, but many native speakers wouldn't be concerned.

    British English speakers tend to favour the plural in many situations like this where the singular could be used.

    Welcome to the forum, Omar.

    Caps Lock off, please. We need to know that you can use capital letters correctly.

    Re: NEITHER

    True- it is very difficult to read things written in capital letters.
