Hello

I've got a problem with this sentence:

It is definitely not the same for them to live here than/or in America.

Are both ok? Does it sound natural?


Thanks a lot for your answer.

Assuming you are comparing "here" with "America", neither of those is correct. It should be:

It is definitely not the same for them to live here as in America.

(If you wanted to compare "here or America" with some other place mentioned earlier, then "or" would be correct.)

Hi Mar Swift

According to the answer you can say:

It is not the same for them to live here as (to live) in America. (=to live "here" is an option and America is another and it's not the same.)


Now, if "here" and America are similar options compared to another place mentioned earlier, for example, Canada, then it'd be like this:

They quite enjoy living in Canada. It is definitely not the same for them to live here or in America.


I think this is the way I understood the use of "same". I hope it helps!

Hi

Would these two be still grammatical and sound ok?

1) It is definitely not the same to them whether to live here or in America.

2) It is definitely not the same for them either to live here or in America.


Thanks!!

Personally, I would write it like this:

For them, living here is definitely not the same as compared to America.

hi,

ok, I think one could say the same in many other ways =)

But, would the two sentences above be correct?

Hi there!

Can we also say:

It is definitely not the same for them whether/either to live in here or America.


I really wonder...
