He saw neither the film nor the play.
He neither saw the film nor the play.
My question is where to put neither with examples ,please.
thanks in advance.
However, if you are talking about two things with two different verbs, you would put "neither" after the personal pronoun. For example:
He neither saw the film nor read the book.
I have neither parachuted nor swum with sharks.
You have neither driven a Ferrari nor ridden a motorbike.
Prescriptive tradition holds that correlatives should introduce parallel units, ie units of equivalent function.
Unlike Either ... or, both ... and, neither ... nor cannot link complete clauses.
Compare (the conjoins are in bold):
Neither he saw the film nor he saw the play. (conjoined clauses)
He neither saw the film nor saw the play. (conjoined predicates)
He saw neither the film nor the play. (conjoined Od's)
He neither saw the film nor the play. unparallel (predicate and Od conjoined)
