Nor As a Conjunction

The conjunction nor is still in use, but it is becoming less common. So it might feel a bit odd when nor does come up in speech or writing.

The most common use of nor is in the correlative pair, neither-nor.

We can use nor to mean 'also not'. In this usage, it comes at the beginning of a clause and is followed by inverted word order: auxiliary verb + subject.

Note that in American English, nor is not used after and.


Nor can follow not. It is more emphatic than or.
