I wonder if this is a wrong usage of the word either:

A. Works for me.
B. For me either.


It is not, at least not in the positive. You can in the negative:

"This doesn't work for me!"
"Me neither!"

Otherwise you should say something like:

Me also.

Me too.

Me as well.

Same here.

and so on.

  • Is it possible to say me either for a possitive statement? – user178049 Jan 7 '17 at 3:14

    Not in my experience. – Andrew Jan 7 '17 at 3:27

    That's correct. We don't normally say me either to concur with a positive statement or a negative one. One reason this may be confusing to some English learners is that we can say things like For me, either (this or that) is ok. I suspect that many users of Standard Englishes might utter for me either in casual speech, and listeners may not notice such things. But if we focus our attention on the structure, we generally recognize it as ungrammatical. – Jim Reynolds Jan 7 '17 at 3:46

    Actually, just reflecting on it, I suspect that many users of Standard English might say me either meaning me also or me neither often enough to consider a deeper answer, such as the designation % used in The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language : "Typically used by some speakers of Standard English, but not by others." See p 9 available on goo.gl/K7e9G1 under Marketing Sample. – Jim Reynolds Jan 7 '17 at 4:01
