Stroll, af far as I know is a verb only. You can't use it as a noun here.

American Heritage Dictionary recognizes 'stroll' as "a leisurely walk".

I'd say "let's go for a stroll", but "he wanted to accompany us on the stroll". What does someone else think?
Neither woman took notice of this, nor of anything else. -is correct.

The rule is 'either/or' and 'neither/nor'.
But "neither" only refers to (both) women. None of them. Neither on them since it appears they were 2.

Shouldn't then it be "neither woman took notice neither of this nor of anything else"? Which sounds a bit heavy/clumsy, even if it's grammatical.

But here the *nor doesn't refer to "neither"...The *nor refers to this\anything else. I think it can be rephrased into "No woman took notice of anything around here"----> "No woman took notice of this or anything else"...

"Neither women nor men took notice...." is possible but it's not the intended sentence...

I may be mistaken so correct me if I am.
Pieanne and Maverick,

Thank you for setting me straight. My eye, and mind, clearly were tricked. And to think, I wanted to be a magician when I was a kid.
Except that with "no woman", it doesn't mean there were 2 of them. I agree with you about the "nor", it is nothing to do with "neither woman".
