    Default mocking laughter


    Could you please check the following sentence.

    Is this sentence correct?


    Neither my refusal nor mocking laughter of my gaze could make you give/ gave up.

    What I try to say is...

    I refused (whatever the person asked for)
    and at the same time.. I looked at him as I was laughing
    but he didin't change his mind...

    neither this nor that could make you gave up or give up

    Default Re: mocking laughter

    As a Brit, but not a teacher, my suggestion would be:

    Neither my refusal nor the mocking laughter of my gaze could make you give up.

    Hope this helps
