WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "ME NEITHER" AND "ME EITHER"?

     
Me either is more common in most of the US. I think me neither is more normal in most of Canada và in the UK. You'd be surprised, though, how people react to lớn this bit of dialectal variation. You'll find rather vocal people who despise me either & can't imagine it being said, even though it's extremely common. Both are fine, though―most people say one or the other, but some people use them interchangeably. They're both informal.
In colloquial spoken language some people use me neither in place of neither bởi I.

Bạn đang xem: What is the difference between "me neither" and "me either"?

A- I don"t like getting up in the morning. B- Neither bởi I. /Me neither.

In the US some people will also use me either in that case:

A- I don"t lượt thích getting up in the morning. B- Me either.

But this is very informal and not to be used in a learning environment where I would stick to neither do I.

You could find "me either" used in a sequence in a sentence like:

A- This does not seem very clear. B- It doesn"t seem clear to lớn me either.

To answer subsidiary question asked in bình luận about the pronunciation of either and neither:The letters in both words can either be pronounced /aɪ/ or /i/. Và to my knowledge this is not a UK vs US difference, although I think /i/ is more frequent in the US, /ˈaɪðə//ˈnaɪðə/ can both be heard in the UK. The question was asked a few years ago on ELU with lots of detailed answers.

As stated in the other answers, “Me neither” can be used instead of “Neither vị I” or “Nor I”. It"s the equivalent of “Me too” or “So bởi I”, but used after a negative sentence. It"s used lớn change the subject of a sentence khổng lồ the speaker.

In most cases, “Me either” isn"t a phrase in its own right. Usually, the two words are separated by a comma or pause. “either” works like “also” và “too”, but again is used with negative sentences. It"s a discursive marker.

“Me neither” can also be considered equivalent lớn “I don"t, either”.

If B says “Me neither.” in the last example, they are at risk of sounding as if they are saying “I don"t like you, either.”. Probably, the sentences that use “I” lớn replace the subject (“neither do I”, “I don"t either”) are safer lớn use for an English learner than those that use “me” khổng lồ replace the subject (“me neither”). The opposite rule goes for replacing the object.
