Parsa

We use the Neither and nor structure when we have 2 nouns. e.g. Neither the Jews nor Muslims are... . What/how we can use if we want to involve more than 2 or 3 nouns?

    Neither is not really 2 nouns, its mostly comparing something. E.G "Neither Thom, Davis, or paul know how to use a computer" you can use Party to describe more than 2 people.. E.G "The pary of thom, davis, paul and baxter started to hang out to late at night" Do you get it?

    "Either" is an singular adjective meaning "one of these". "Neither" is a singular adjective meaning "not one of these" or "not any of these". "Or" is a conjunction connection two alteratives. "Nor" is a conjunction connecting two negative alternatives. Either and Or are used together, while Neither and Nor are used together. You DO NOT MIX them. So just like a list of positives, a negative list uses "nor" only on the farthest of the list. Example: "Neither Jews, Muslims, nor Chrisitians...."
