No podemos empezar la oración con "Neither..." si no hay algo antes. Por ejemplo:Sí, esta es la forma usual. Yo estoy preguntando por 'inversion'.
Gracias de todas formas
Here is a page with several examples of "Neither...nor...", including...nor he heard anything
I agree with you."Neither was his case politically motivated nor the party leader a victim of political vendetta."
In my mind I can make this grammatically acceptable only by inserting "was": "...nor was the party leader..."
Should I invert the second part too?Your sentence could become "Neither did he see anybody nor did he hear anything. "
I did see what he said, but after reading a lot of examples in the site I forgot it . Thanks for pointing it out!Look what Cenzontle said about that! (And I agree with him).
I find it hard to believe that an exam would ask you to create such an unnatural sentence. If it is testing your knowledge of inversion (changing the normal order of words), then this is something we might say:Neither did he see anybody nor did he hear anything.
I know, but the point is that we have to learn inversion to pass grammar exams.
