    Iím neither rich ...

    1- I’m neither rich nor do I at a higher pay grade nor do I have (personal relationships/good connections?) nor am I successful nor am I educated but I’m good at suffering.

    2- I’m neither rich, nor do I at a higher pay grade, nor do I have (personal relationships/good connections?), nor am I successful, nor am I educated, but I’m good at suffering.

    3- I’m neither rich, at a higher pay grade/higher in rank, have (personal relationships/good connections?), successful, nor educated, but I’m good at suffering.

    4- I’m neither rich, at a higher pay grade/higher in rank, have (personal relationships/good connections?), successful, nor educated. But I’m good at suffering.



    I really need some help with those sentences. Would you help?

    Re: Iím neither rich ...

    What sort of help do you want? Where did you find them? Did you write them yourself?

    Re: Iím neither rich ...

    None of them are natural. Try breaking them up into several sentences.

    Re: Iím neither rich ...

    Iím neither rich, nor at a higher pay grade/higher in rank. Iím not successful, nor educated. But Iím good at suffering.

    Iím neither rich, at a higher pay grade/higher in rank, nor successful. Iím not highly educated/well qualified. But Iím good at suffering.

    Please check.

    See above. Use nor only in a phrase that begins with neither (though there are some exceptions).
