The food is not bad, either.

Wife: The servers at this restuarant are very good.

Husband: You’re right. And the food is not bad, either.

Would you please tell me which word “either”

focuses on? (I am not using “modifies,” for that word

seems to upset many people who feel that “to focus on”

and “to modify” are two separate concepts while other

people feel that the two words basically mean the same


Thank you VERY much.


‘Either’ doesn’t ‘focus on’ a word; it ‘focuses on’ the clause ‘the food is not bad’.

Thank you, sir.
