1 Chapter 9 Connectors: And….Too And…Either So, But, Neither

2 So and Too "So" and "too" are interchangeable in meaning, but they require different word orders. “Too”= comes at the end of the sentence and is preceded by a comma. “So”= reverses the word order, with the verb preceding the subject. Example: I’m tired. I am, too. - or - I’m tired. So am I.

3 So and Too Example: (To Be)I am happy. So am I. I am, too. (Past Continuous)I was watching. So was I. I was, too. (Future: will)I’ll be busy. So will I. I will, too. (Present Perfect)I’ve been sick.So have I. I have,

4 So and Too Example: (Simple Present)I have an exam.So do I. I do, too. (Simple Past) I missed the bus.So did I. I did, too.

5 So and Too When two situations are the same, you could write a sentence like this: I like to eat pizza, and my children like to eat pizza. But this is better: I like to eat pizza. My children do, too. - or - I like to eat pizza. So do my children. (These make your sentences shorter but stronger.)

6 So and Too I’m hungry.I am, too. So am I. I can swim.I can, too. So can I. I’ve seen that movie.I have, too. So have I. I have a car. I do, too. So do I. I worked yesterday.I did, too. So did I.

8 What a Coincidence! 1.A. I’m a vegetarian. B.What a coincidence! I am, too. So am I.

9 So and Too "So" and "too" are useful words that can make your sentences shorter but stronger. The examples here show them used with conjunctions, but there are many applications for these words. Examples: I went to a movie, and my friend did, too. - or - I went to a movie, and so did my friend. Pay attention to word order. "Too" goes at the end of the sentence, and "so" goes after the conjunction, then the helping verb, and then the subject.

10 So and Too When two situations are the same, you could write a sentence like this: I like to eat pizza, and my children like to eat pizza. But this is better: I like to eat pizza, and my children do, too. - or - I like to eat pizza, and so do my children.

11 So and Too I’m tired,and he is, too. and so is he. He’ll be busy,and she will, too. and so will she. She’s been sick,and he has, too. and so has he.

12 And They Do, Too Pages #1-14 Example: A.Why can’t you or the children help me with the dishes? B.I have to study, and they do, too. and so do they.
