Grammar: Either and Neither

Either usually means there is choice between two possibilities:
You can have either vodka or whisky.
Either we leave now, or we miss the last train.
Neither…… nor is used in a negative way when you want to say that two or more things are not true:
Neither Craig nor Reza speak Chinese.
“neither” can be used as an adverb:
Reza can’t speak Chinese. Neither can I. (tampoco) / I can’t either.
Reza can’t speak Chinese, nor can Craig.
I’d like to visit Mexico and Brazil. Either country could be interesting. (Cualquier país podría ser interesante.)
Neither shirt really suits you. (Ningúna camisa realmente te queda bien.)
“None of the shirts suit you.” (for a choice of 3 or more)
    

   

 

Grammar: Adverbs of Frequency

siempre – always
casi siempre – almost always
normalmente – usually, normally
a menudo – often
a veces – sometimes
raramente – rarely
casi nunca – hardly ever
nunca – never

We usually put adverbs of frequency BEFORE the main verb (antes del verbo principal): “I usually get up at 8.” – Usualmente me levanto a las 8.
This is also true if there is an auxiliary verb: “I have often thought of emigrating.” – He pensado muchas veces en emigrar.
But, we put adverbs of frequency AFTER the verb TO BE: (después del verbo “to be”): “Reza is never late” – Reza nunca llega tarde. (Reza is occasionally late – occasionally = ocasionalmente)
Sometimes, adverbs of frequency can be put at the beginning or at the end (en posición final o inicial): “Normally, I get up at 8.” – “I get up at 8, normally.”
