Neither

“Neither did he come nor did he write.”
Is this inversion statement correct?
Can I write it below as ordinary sentences:

  1. Neither he came nor he wrote.
  2. He neither came nor wrote.

Hi,

If you start with ‘neither’ or ‘nor’ you need inversion. (1) is incorrect and (2) is correct.

Mr. Alan,
Is “Neither did he come nor did he write.” correct or wrong?

Ir is correct. That’s why I said :

Mr Alan,
Can I write it in present tense as below:
“Neither does he come nor does he write.”
Is it acceptable?

Mr. Alan,
I am expecting your valued comments.
Thanks.

Hi,

Yes, it makes sense if you are referring to something that he doesn’t do on a regular basis.

What about

“Neither has he come or written.”?

“nor” or “or” due to the inversion of the main verb?

Thanks

It still follows the ‘neither… nor’ phrasing.
