GRAMMAR POINT
neither / either
After neither and either you use a singular verb: Neither candidate was selected for the job.
Neither of and either of are followed by a plural noun or pronoun and a singular or plural verb. A plural verb is more informal: Neither of my parents speaks/speak a foreign language.
When neither... nor... or either... or... are used with two singular nouns, the verb can be singular or plural. A plural verb is more informal.
