    Please help...

    I'm preparing a project for a lesson and summarizing a famous novel which was also adapted into TV series. But the novel is Turkish and I have to translate it to English. Unfortunately there is a sentence I made I'm not sure of its accuracy. The sentence is like: "Neither does Mrs. Ziyagil like her daughters nor do they/do her daughters like their mother." I am not sure if the sentence is grammatically correct or completely wrong.

    Please let me know if it's correct or wrong. If it's wrong, then how can I correct it? The sentence tells that Mrs. Ziyagil doesn't like her daughters and her daughters also don't like their mothers. Thanks in advance.

    Mrs Ziyagil does not like her daughters; nor do they like her.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That is one messed up family.

    You could also say:

    Mrs Ziyagil does not like her daughters. They don't like her either.
