Hi,

i want to know that its correct to say someone my thoughts and prayers are with him/her""

Yes, that's fine. However, If you say that, it means you are referring to the dead person. You might also say, eg to his wife, my thoughts and prayers are with you. 'You' here refers to the wife. It depends on wther you want to focus on the living or the dead.

Best wishes, Clive

in this sentence you have written

It depends on wther you want to focus on the living or the dead

can i use these idioms "either ~ or" or "neither ~ or" instead of "whether ~ or"?

Pdk001--
No, you can't substitute these.

im sorry

could you explain to me why it can't

thank you
Hi,

Whether is used to introduce an indirect question and to express doubt or the possibility of choice.

eg Direct question: Do you want tea or coffee?

Indirect question: He asked whether I wanted tea or coffee.

Either and neither don't have this type of meaning.

If you are asking answer from Lazarus, he/she wouldn't answer because he/she woudn't know how to answer or what to answer. I hope you got an answer from forum experts. Cheers.Emotion: smile My job on this forum is to identify who is good and who acts to be good.
