So / Neither ?

To agree with a POSITIVE statement:
We use SO + auxiliary/modal verb + pronoun:

'I like tea without sugar.'
'So do I.'

To agree with a NEGATIVE statement:
We use nor/neither + auxiliary/modal verb + pronoun:

'I don't like tea with sugar.'
'Nor do I.' or 'Neither do I.'

To disagree with a POSITIVE statement:
We use pronoun + auxiliary/modal verb + not (-n't):

'I like tea without sugar.'
'I don't.'

To disagree with a NEGATIVE statement:
We use pronoun + auxiliary/modal verb:

'I don't like tea with sugar.'
'I do'.
