Yes, I do not like it either.
I know that we should say," No, he is not kind", "No I don't know it, etc", but can I also say, "Yeah, I do not like it."
And some say " Yes / Yeah, I do not like it either." is fine to use. What do you experts think?
And one more thing.
A: If you found a wallet on the street, would you keep it?
B: No, I would give it to the police.
In B's dialogue, "No" is a suitable answer or "Yes, I would give it to the police" or is there an omission of something behind "No" like "No, (I would not) I would give it to the police."? I have learned that negatives should follow "no". So I am really confused now.
What do you experts think? Thank you so much as usual and have a good and safe day.
When we use yes or yeah in this context, we are indicating agreement with the other person.
A: This food tastes strange. What do you think?
B: Yeah, I don’t like it either.
In your other example, A is asking a yes or no question. You need to first answer yes or no to “Would you keep it?” before you elaborate. The answer is either, “No, I would give it to the police” or “Yes, I would keep it.”
I am not sure what you mean that negatives should follow “no”.
