I think that (B) sounds strange.. if not altogether incorrect. :-)
Sep 25, 2012 05:41 sessu1 commented on [047] And / Or
I say neither: I'll never turn my back on (either) life or love. D: I will turn my back on neither life nor love.

Jul 23, 2012 18:31 commented on [036] Canada
(C) and (D) seem correct to me. But they all say that few people speak English in Canada? I thought many people speak English in Canada!
Jul 22, 2012 22:33 commented on [035] No Living Things
They are both fine! Although to me, the second one feels more natural for some reason. But they are both fine. (^^)
