the frequency of occurrence increases from never or hardly
ever to occasionally or sometimes, these adverbs give
a positive rather than a negative meaning to what is being said.
If we wish to agree with statements in a positive way, this is our
opportunity to use so or too. Compare the following:
would never work as a shop assistant in a large department
store. ~ Neither would I.
could hardly / scarcely understand a word he was
saying ~ Nor could your parents.
Henry nor Harry is / are coming to Edward's
party. ~ I'm not either.
occasionally eat lunch at 'The Blue Parrot'.
~ So does Tom. / Tom does too.
sometimes have to work at weekends to get everything done
~ So do we. / We do too.
go to the cinema quite often - twice a week usually.
~ Me too. / So do I.
always uses olive oil in her cooking
~ So do my Spanish friends / My Spanish friends do too.
that the expressions Me too and Me neither, both of
which are used in very informal speech, can only be used with first
person singular agreement:
it's already two o' clock and I haven't done any work today. ~
so tired I could sleep for twelve hours. ~ Me too.
