    Lightbulb Re: Either ..or

    He can neither write nor read, assuming that the he in both sentences is the same person.

    Re: Either ..or

    You have to use its negative form neither . . . nor, which stands for not either . . . not or. "not either" combines to form "neither" and "not or" combines to "nor", like this,

    1. He can not (either) read => He can neither read
    2. He can not (or) write => nor write

    EX: He can neither read nor write.

    All the best.
