2 clarification questions re ya sea/ya fuera

Using the example from above:

Tenía que conseguir cualquier trabajo, ya fuera de día o de noche.

I had to get a job, either a day job or a night job.

1) can it be used with MORE than 2 choices?

ex: "I had to get a job, either a day job, a night job, or a part-time job."

and

2) Not sure how ask gramatically... could it also be used in just 1 phrase?ex: "I had to get either a day job or a night job."

Thanks

Hola Doug,

1/ yes, you can use it with more than two options still using the same:

Tenía que conseguir cualquier trabajo, ya fuera de día, de noche o de media jornada.

2/ different options here but slightly different to 1/:

Tenía que conseguir o un trabajo de día o un trabajo de noche.

Tenía que conseguir un trabajo de día o un trabajo de noche.

Tenía que conseguiro bien un trabajo de díao bien un trabajo de noche.

 I had to get either a day job or a night job.

This may help. Have a look here.

Saludos

Inma
