Can anyone tell me if this is true and where can I find more information on this. I can listen to my professor and just watch out for this word. However, I am not convinced it should be avoided.
Anonymous:In my opinion, there's nothing wrong with the word "Nor" and I find it, though I'm not a native / fluent, quite proper.
I see no reason to avoid it, unless you don't know how to put it in sentences properly.
Just my opinion - No correctness guaranteed!
How did you use nor?
"My child cannot play the drums nor can he read sheet music."
"here nor there"
JoeVizI've used nor in the following ways.The first is ok, but the second would have to be "neither here nor there"
Although "nor" can be used on its own, it is generally used with "neither". Most often used on its own in this way:
"I've never been to Canada" "Nor have I."
And having checked US dictionaries, I think your teacher is clearly wrong here.
Anonymous:how can i sue the word nor im a sentence
Anonymoushow can i sue the word nor im a sentenceDo you mean "How can I use the word "nor" in a sentence?"
There are some examples already in this thread.
I can neither read Chinese, nor can I understand it when I hear it spoken.
People are waiting to help.
