    "Neither" and "nor" are the negative versions of "either" and "or".

    It's easier to explain the positive versions first. They present a choice of options, of which you may only choose one.

    - You may have either the cake or the chocolate bar
    ---- this means that the person is allowed one of the two items.

    However, if you are forbidding someone from having them, you can use the neither / nor construction.

    - You may have neither the cake nor the chocolate bar.

    Regards,

    Mark

    Let me correct your quote: I want you to explain me how to use "neither and nor" giving some examples.
    I agree with MarkHarrison on this matter.
