"Either A or B is tall." A is tall, B is tall, or A and B are tall.
"A is taller than either B or C." A is taller than both.
So what does "A is taller than B or C" mean? Does "than" by itself have the same exclusivity as "than either?" Or is it inclusive, i.e. A could be taller than B only, A could be taller than C only, or A could be taller than both? If not, how would that inclusivity be phrased as a rule?
