Question..What does ''Mon amie non plus.'' mean ?.. answer My friend neither.
“My friend too.“ Is given as a mistake.
.. maybe a bit too correct.. whilst my friend neither is grammatically correct, how many of us would actually say that? I think most would more often say “my friend too”.. meaning” my friend agrees with me!
Without the full context it is difficult to be sure but normally you will answer ‘non plus’ to a negative statement and aussi to a positive one.
Je n’aime pas les vacances en montagne ——> mon amie non plus
I don’t like holidays in the mountains ——> my friend doesn’t either ( but I do)
J’aime le chocolat noir ——> mon amie aussi ( mais moi non)
Hope this helps!
Don't you think however that "neither" conveys a clear negative, but "too" could convey a meaning of agreement to both a negative or positive statement?
Just a thought.
I wont go there, and my friend neither.I'll go there, and my friend too.
