Anon,
Please research your answer before posting it. "Neither" has many properties. It can be a conjunction, adverb, adjective or a pronoun depending on how it is used and constructed into a sentence. But a subject! That's the first for me.

"Neither of them are going to the party."

What's the subject then?
Mister MicawberNeither I nor my colleagues could see that coming. I...could see
So, with neither...nor.... you don't need to invert the subjects, as in My colleagues and I went to the caféteria, but you can leave "I" as the leading subject, is this correct?

Thank you
