Using neither...nor

This isn’t used that much in contemporary (modern) English, but if you want to use it, make sure you do so correctly. Use it when you want to say two negatives about something. So say I want to say that the dinosaur Diplodocus was not fast and was not smart. These are two negatives, so I can use a ‘neither...nor’ statement:

Diplodocus was neither smart nor fast.
