Hi

Would you say that both of these are the same?

A - I don't like it.

B - Me neither.

A - I don't like it.

B - Me either.

Thanks,

Tom

Mr. TomA - I don't like it.
B - Me neither.

"Me neither" is an informal idiomatic response. The more grammatically standard alternative "Neither do I" is OK at all levels of formality.

Mr. TomA - I don't like it.
B - Me either.

This is incorrect.

Thanks, GPY.

I heard 'me either' in an American film and started this thread. I read your reply and did a bit of research. I just found this discussion which says that 'me either' is purely American.

Mr. Tom'me either' is purely American.

OK, thanks, I didn't know it was possible in AmE.

Everything is possible in America. Emotion: smile

I've heard "Me either", but my instincts tell me that most of us over here say "Me neither". (For the vast majority of us, that's /'ni:ðɚ/, not /'naɪðɚ/.)
