Quoting tunci

 

"Either  or "  form

Either you or me will suffer from this ---> Ya sen ya da ben bundan muzdarip olacağız.

-----------------------------------------

Either Ali or you or I must attend the meeting ---> Ya Ali ya sen ya da ben toplantıya katılmalıyız.

-----------------------------------------

Tunci, there is an interesting difference between "formal" (grammatically correct, the Queen´s English) and everyday English (accepted English) here.

 

In one example you use "you or me" and the other "you or I"

Both are used generally in everyday speech, and are now both generally accepted as correct.

 

But real sticklers for English grammar would use "me" or "I" depending on whether you would use "me" or "I" in the same senetence without the either.

 

E.g. We say "I will go away" : so it should be "Either you or I will go away"

We say "give it to me" : so it should be "He will give it to either you or me"

 

But normally we don´t worry about this subtle difference.
