Is it grammatically correct to use Neither in the start of a sentence?Example- Neither would the toddler give up the toy nor come inside?
Hi Micheal. In short, yes, it is possible to start a sentence with ‘neither.’ If it’s good enough for Shakespeare, it’s good enough for us. (“Neither a borrower nor a lender be.”) I would suggest that “The toddler would neither give up the toy nor come inside,” has a slightly better flow to it.
