So and neither

Vicky: I'm hungry.

Rachel: So am I.I haven't eaten anything all day.

Daniel: Neither have I. I didn't have time for breakfast.

We use so after a positive statement and neither after a negative one. I'm hungry. ~ So am I. (= And I'm hungry./I'm hungry, too.) / haven't eaten. ~ Neither have I. (= And I haven't eaten./I haven't eaten either.)

The structure is so/neither + an auxiliary + the subject.

The auxiliary is a form of be or have or a modal verb, e.g. can.

We're really busy at work. ~ So are we. Tom has gone to the match. ~ And so has Nick.

David can't drive, and neither can Melanie. The subject comes at the end. NOT We're busy. ~ So we are. In the present simple and past simple we use a form of do.

I love old cowboy films. ~ So do I. This phone doesn't work. ~ Neither does this one.

United won, and so did Rangers.

We can use nor instead of neither.

Emma isn't here tonight. Neither/Nor is Matthew

David Carrol History

United Breaks Guitars

United Airlines Song Background (short version)

In the spring of 2008, Sons of Maxwell were traveling to Nebraska for a one-week tour and my Taylor guitar was witnessed being thrown by United Airlines baggage handlers in Chicago. I discovered later that the $3500 guitar was severely damaged. They didn’t deny the experience occurred but for nine months the various people I communicated with put the responsibility for dealing with the damage on everyone other than themselves and finally said they would do nothing to compensate me for my loss. So I promised the last person to finally say “no” to compensation (Ms. Irlweg) that I would write and produce three songs about my experience with United Airlines and make videos for each to be viewed online by anyone in the world. United: Song 1 is the first of those songs. United: Song 2 has been written and video production is underway. United: Song 3 is coming. I promise.
