A- I don"t lượt thích getting up in the morning. B- Neither bởi vì I. /Me neither.

In the US some people will also use me either in that case:

A- I don"t lượt thích getting up in the morning. B- Me either.

But this is very informal và not khổng lồ be used in a learning environment where I would stiông chồng to neither do I.

You could find "me either" used in a sequence in a sentence like:

A- This does not seem very clear. B- It doesn"t seem clear to me either.

To answer subsidiary question asked in phản hồi about the pronunciation of either and neither:The letters in both words can either be pronounced /aɪ/ or /i/. And to lớn my knowledge this is not a UK vs US difference, although I think /i/ is more frequent in the US, /ˈaɪðə/ & /ˈnaɪðə/ can both be heard in the UK. The question was asked a few years ago on ELU with lots of detailed answers.

In most cases, “Me either” isn"t a phrase in its own right. Usually, the two words are separated by a comma or pause. “either” works lượt thích “also” and “too”, but again is used with negative sầu sentences. It"s a discursive marker.

Here are some examples:

A: I don"t lượt thích her.

B: Me neither.

and

A: She doesn"t like me.

If B says “Me neither.” in the last example, they are at risk of sounding as if they are saying “I don"t like you, either.”. Probably, the sentences that use “I” to replace the subject (“neither vị I”, “I don"t either”) are safer khổng lồ use for an English learner than those that use “me” to lớn replace the subject (“me neither”). The opposite rule goes for replacing the object.
