Question regarding "sia"
Are both acceptable sentences or does "sia" always replace "e"?
Mangio sia pollo sia pesce.
Mangio sia pollo e pesce.
- Solved : "sia pollo che" is more common, then less commom is "sia pollo sia". "sia pollo e" isn't acceptable Thanks to dnovinc & fratellingo
For "e" I am sure it doesn't come with "sia" , instead of it you have "che".
- Mangio sia pollo che pesce / I eat both chicken and fish.
- Mangio sia pollo sia pesce / I eat both chicken and fish.
I don't know which construction is more common.
Interesting because the lessons indicate using "sia" twice. I haven't even come across the combination of "sia" and "che" yet.
The "sia" used in this sentence is usually followed by "che". It becomes: "Mangio sia pollo che pesce".
The common use of "sia" e "che" is the most used form. You can find in some books or articles the use of "sia" and "sia" but is not used a lot.
