I don't know if the question I am going to ask sounds stupid to some of you. I just looked up for the difference between a vegetarian and a vegan. And I was about to write the definition of "vegan" in my own words but I think there is something I need to ask before I finally write it. Let's just read my own definition of the word "vegan" first and then I'll move on elaborating a little more on my question.
Vegan A person who not only consumes meat, fish and poultry items but also other animal products like milk, egg, yogurt, cheese, etc.
Now normally when we are using Present Indefinite Tense, we use "don't" and "doesn't" to make a negative statement. But what in this particular case? Is it okay to use "not only" or "doesn't only" in this particular case?
A person who not only consumes meat, fish and poultry....
A person who doesn't only consume meat, fish and poultry...
The first one sounds natural to me but looks grammatically incorrect. The second one looks grammatically correct but doesn't sound natural to me.
I am not a native speaker, so I have no idea which one of them should be picked. Kindly guide me in this regard.
