Neither, nor and not ... either

Posted by Manjusha Filed in Practical English Usage

We can use neither and nor to mean also not. They come at the beginning of a clause, and are followed by inverted word order: auxiliary verb + subject.

We can also use not --- either with the same meaning and normal word order.
