Using 又 with a 把 construction So, I'm doing Chinese at uni and we recently learned 又 can be used to indicate a degree of simultaneous action (又喝茶又吃飯). I'm probably trying to cram too much grammar into one sentence but for the sake of practice can I use this particle along with 把? For example to say 'In fact, I'm doing this homework (right now) as I'm talking to my friend', would this be correct? ‘其實我又跟朋友說話又把這門功課做’

你好!Ethan , 又....又,in this case means:both。。。and。。。,we never use with "把”to say a sentence. When you want to express "while"we'd like to say: 一边。。。一边。。。,can not use with "把” Eg:我一边和朋友说话,一边写作业/做功课。 Hope that's helpful for you! Thanks~

事實上,我在做功課的同時又在跟朋友說話。 (中文生活對話中,同時用兩個又的情況很少)

Here's my translation of your sentence: "In fact, I'm doing this homework (right now) as I'm talking to my friend." 其实,我现在就是在一边做这个作业/做功课,一边和朋友聊天。 Here is using 把 together with 又...又... 我现在可忙着呢,又要照顾我的妹妹,又要把这作业/功课给做了(完成这个作业)。 This is not the most natural way of saying it. Avoid it if you have to. Here is the typically usage of 又...又... 1. 弟弟又哭又闹。 2. 他(长得)又高又帅。
