    Neither...nor

    used when you want to say that two or more things are not true:

    Neither my mother nor my father went to university.
    I neither know nor care what's happened to him.

    Either...or

    describes a situation in which there is a choice between two things, but both together are not possible:

    I think shes either Russian or Polish.
    Im going to buy either a camera or a DVD player with the money.

    Not only...but also

    used to emphasize that something else is also true:

    She not only wrote the text but also selected the illustrations.
    Not only did he turn up late, he also forgot his books.
    If this project fails it will affect not only our department, but also the whole organization.
