comment How do I say that something must happen or another thing, not both, in one simple sentence?
I hold that it isn't the same at all. Compare "Your dessert may be ice cream or cake" (enumerating possible values for one property) with "You may have either an appetizer or a dessert" (separate properties that are mutually exclusive, with no mention of the possible values).

Careful. The meaning doesn't match the original. The question refers to two distinct properties (with no mention of their values), not a single binary property.

comment Do we “study about” something?
I agree that read/read about are different, but I'm not sure I agree for study. Even if I were only looking at a copy of a Picaso painting online or reading an article about the meaning behind the painting, I would use studying. Doesn't study already imply that I'm accessing all kinds of related information in addition to the original (if any)?
