“Either” or “Neither”  At the very start, understand that the presence of -n signals a negative. Think “-n equals ‘no’.” Always used with pairs of objects, ideas and so forth, “either” shows a choice between the two, while “neither” excludes both. To couple each word with its correct helper, watch for the -n. Try repeating them out loud several times, as their almost singsong quality can help to cement them into your mind: “either or,” “neither nor”…”either or,” “neither nor.”
