    Default Re: How could I use "Neither - Nor"

    The verb after a positive or negative conjunct (i.e. an '(either)...or' or 'neither...nor' phrase) normally takes the person and number of the second component. Thus

    Neither my father nor I enjoy opera. = Neither I nor my father enjoys opera.
