Some conjunctions are used in pairs. They are called correlative conjunctions. Most of these are of the coordinating type.

Either -- or

We use either--or to talk about a choice between two possibilities (and sometimes more than two).

Neither -- nor

We use neither -- nor to join two negative ideas. It is the opposite of both--and. Sometimes more than two ideas are connected by neither--nor.

Not only--but also

Also is often omitted.

Note that in informal English not only--but also is not very common; other structures are generally preferred.





So -- that



Note that it is wrong to use that instead of as in these sentences.
