    Neither...nor for three nouns

    Hello,

    I know how to use neither and nor for two nouns, but how do you use it for three?

    E.g. I can say : Neither oranges, nor apples are his favourite fruits.

    But what should I say for three types of fruits?

    I remember that I should use "none" but how do I put it correctly?

    Your question seems similar to a question that has already appeared on this forum. Please take a look at this link https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/g...r-nor-nor.html

    I have none of the following: sugar, milk, bread ...

    I have neither bread to eat, nor milk to drink, nor sugar for sweetness, nor salt for taste.
