    either..... or

    1. Ho doesn't like apples nor grapes.

    2. Ho doesn't like apples or grapes.

    3. Ho likes neither apples nor grapes.

    4. Are the above sentences correct in structure and all in the same meaning?

    5. Shall I use apple and grape in the form of plural or single?

    6. May wants to go to either China or Japan for holiday.

    Re: either..... or

    bhaisahab, I have a similar question.
    What about this?:
    I am neither a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Should I really say,
    I am neither a teacher nor am I a native speaker.

    Or even:
    I am neither a teacher or a native speaker.


    Right now I'm confused as well.

    Cheers!

    This is perfectly correct. The OP's sentence was "Ho doesn't like apples nor grapes."
    Which is not.
