Me Too or Me Either?

Introduction to a New Grammar Structure

“Me too.” and “Me either.” are short “sentences” that are an abbreviated way to say that what was just said also applies to me.

The main difference is that “too” is used if the preceding verb is positive, and
“either” is used if the preceding verb is negative.

Me Neither

You may hear “me either” or “me neither”. These have the same meaning.

When we say “me either”, we are really saying “notme either”, which is “me neither“, but “me either” is probably more common.

Example

Ponder this example:

Abby: I am so tired.

Betty: Me too.

Abby: However, I am not hungry.

Betty: Me either.

Homework: Can my students post some similar dialogs to demonstrate the usage of these two phrases?
