A post further down says "soit..soit is used when followed by anything other than a verb". I’ve just done a quiz elsewhere where the answer they wanted was "Soit tu mets du déodorant, soit je te quitte"! Is this a usage that exists but isn’t good French? If so, what’s a better way to express it? I can’t imagine "soit que" is very common and "que" + subjunctive verb seems to be a yes/no situation (eg que tu le mettes ou pas) rather than offering two alternative verbs.
Thank you for your comment! You are correct that "soit... soit... " can be followed by a verb. So we've amended the lesson accordingly and added more complex examples to explain the different ways to use this expression.
You can use "que..." with "soit... soit..." - Attention: "que" is not linked with "soit"
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée et merci de votre contribution!
