thanks a lot Mr. James.
i would like to ask,do know how many lessons left to finish this course in EngVid? because we reached to 1213 lessons until now ?!!

Profile photo of mohamediha mohamediha

    I question me the same. But I think that it will never finish because The exercise to learn never finish, The knowledge is unlimited, is a diary activity.

A revision of conjunctions very useful, I have remembered my first doubts with this types of grammatical structures, overall with the two positions and pronunciations of “Either…or” (choice) or “not..either” (negative). A great video class and very useful to follow studying English. Thanks a lot, teacher James, you rock.

Hi! Sorry, I have a question, probably a stupid one, but this sentence doesn’t sound me correct:
“Not only was it of great quality but it was also cheap”, why is it not “not only it WAS of great..”? I mean why the subject is after the verb?

Profile photo of SaraSCV SaraSCV

    It’s the correct sentence. It’s the inversion. This construction is used to emphasize something.
    To build such kind of sentence you reverse the subject and the verb; add the the auxiliary verb for tenses.

Profile photo of yasser Daoud yasser Daoud

Hello James. On this lesson I got a doubt. For example in this case “not only did he finish, but he also got the highest score in the class”. Instead did he finish, could I say: not only he finished, but also… There is another case: “not only do they live on the same street, but they also work in the same office” why put “do” before they. Would be wrong if I say: not only they live on the same street, but they also work in the same office?

“Either A or B” is a frustrating expression to me, because apparently it doesn’t have a logical equivalent: depending on the context, it could be an “inclusive or” (A, B or both) or a “selection/exclusive or” (A or B, but not both). Natural language is not as precise as logic, I guess =*

Thanks a lot! Love your lessons! Everything is clear and easy to understand.
But have 1 question:I have a sentence in a book (Neither Jack nor Brian is strong) I think it’s a mistake (is) it should be (are) or it is possible to use singular as well?

Profile photo of Irina Syvokon Irina Syvokon

    Nope! We use singular verb with either or neither
    so, “Neither Jack nor Brian is strong” is correct one.

    Profile photo of Hassanrazaa Hassanrazaa

      but if both nouns are plural then we use plural verb with that sentence.

      Profile photo of Hassanrazaa Hassanrazaa

Not only your lectures inspired me but it also helps me learn English.

Profile photo of Hassanrazaa Hassanrazaa

Both you and engvid’s team are teaching English very well.

is it correct?

Profile photo of Hassanrazaa Hassanrazaa

Not only did it smell,but it also tasted funny.

Is it mandatory to use the auxiliary verb in the first clause (did it smell)? Could it be: “Not only it smelt, but also tasted funny”?

Hi James, I appreciate the wonderful class you have here and the example sentences are very nice. ;)
One quick question though, in the no. 3 example you gave in the latter half of the video–
“Neither the woman nor the man were happy with the answer.”
According to one of the grammar book I have (perhaps it’s not so correct?), the verb should be aligned with the subject that is closer to it, and hence in this case the verb should be “was” (to be aligned with “the man”), instead of “were”.
So I’m confused here. It would be great if you could kindly clarify this particular grammatical rule for me. Thanks a lot for your help.

Thanx James, I want to say hello to you and the rest of a students, I am new here, your lessons are great, usefull and you are really funny, I laugh every time I watch your lessons :)).

It is bothering me something in this lesson. I am confused about the tence in sentences when we talk about negation (not only-but also). Example: “Not only was it of great quality, but it was also cheep”

In first part of a sentence we have a question form (not only WAS IT of..), don’t we need to say “Not only IT WAS of great quality, but it was also cheep” ?

other students can also help, thank you
