    neither ... nor...可連接兩個字或片語

    Neither Simon nor Sally can swim.(連接兩個當主詞的專有名詞,放句子前面)

    He was neither as slim nor as healthy as I was.(連接兩個介系詞片語,放句子中間)

    Whether or not I agree with you is neither here nor there.(連接兩個當主詞補語的副詞)

    either ... or ...的用法和neither...nor相同,都是對等連接詞,但意思相反.

    Students could choose either French or Spanish.(連接兩個專有名詞,當動詞的受詞,放句子後面)

    You can either come by bus or take a taxi.(連接兩個述部,放句子後面)

    Either he forgot about the meeting or he deliberately stayed away -- I don't know.(連接兩個子句,放句子前面)
