1. How do I apply 'nor' in a grammatically correct sentence?
2. Nor is a conjunction, isn't?
3. Where do we have to put 'nor'?
4. Based on the examples below, 'nor' can be used with/or without neither, can't it?
I have neither time nor money for nightclubs.
Is this sentence same with: I don't have time and money for nightclubs.
Not a flower nor even a blade of grass will grow in this desert.
Can I say: Neither a flower nor even a blade of grass will grow in this desert.
'Nor' suggests a negative meaning, does not it? If yes, why in this sentence we have to put Not?
He can't do it; nor can I, nor can you, nor can anybody.
Does it mean he can't do it; and I can't, and you can't, and anybody can't either.
Nor was this all.
What does this sentence mean?
Nor will I deny that ...
What does it mean?
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. (positive sentence)
Is this grammatically correct sentence?
If yes, then 'any' here means some? any questions = some questions?
I have some books.
I don't have any books. (negative sentence)
So, 'any' can be used in both positive and negative sentences depends on the context. Is it right?
