    Both / Neither

    Mary does not like durians. John does not like durians.

    1. Both Mary and John do not like durians.
    2. Neither Mary or John likes durians.

    Which is the correct sentence when the above sentence is transformed?

    Re: Both / Neither

    Both are OK, but neither might be more common because it introduces a negative statement, whereas both can introduce either a postive or negative statement.

    Does that help?
