Do the following sentences present acceptable usages for
- Either this or that fruit is not tasty.
I do understand I should have said that differently i.e. with a positive statement:
Neither this nor that fruit is tasty.
But I am particularly interested in the negation. Some more examples for consideration:
Either fruits are not tasty.
Either students will not be restricted.
Either of the lakes are not polluted.
Either paths have not been taken.
P.S. I am not interested in these classic usages for
either in a negation:
My pal is sober and I am not drunk either. [hic]
We cannot use either copybook.
