    "Neither" and "either" after "no" and its derivatives.

    Is it correct to use "neither" after "no" or its derivatives (e.g. nothing, nowhere, etc.)? So is it correct to say: "She has nothing to say. - Neither do I. He went nowhere yesterday. - Neither did I"? What about the following statements: "She has gone nowhere. - I don't have either"?
