    also in negative

    Hi,

    please could you advise me on the following?

    Is "also" right in those negative sentences? And is its position correct in both cases?

    I don't like tea and also I don't like coffee.

    I don't like tea and I don't also like coffee.

    Thanks a lot.

    You don't like tea- on a British web site?

    The position of "also" is good in the first example although "also" is not entirely necessary: "I don't like tea and I don't like coffee."

    In the second sentence, put "also" in front of "don't":

    I don't like tea and I also don't like coffee.

    G.F.
