## neither

Neither (1) nor (2) alone is sufficient for (3) to hold.

Thus A is neither symmetric nor positive.

Both X and Y are countable, but neither is finite.

Neither of them is finite.

[Use * neither* when there are two
alternatives; if there are more, use * none*.]

Let u and v be two distributions neither of which has compact support.

As shown in Figure 3, neither curve intersects X.

In neither case can f be smooth. [Note the inversion after the negative
clause.]

Both proofs are easy, so we give neither.

Thus X is not finite; neither <nor> is Y.

Neither is the problem simplified by assuming f=g.
