Nor

NOR, connective. [ne and or.]

1. A word that denies ro renders negative the second or subsequent part of a proposition, or a proposition following another negative proposition; correlative to neither or not.

I neither love no fear thee.

Fight neither with small nor great. 1 Ki 22.

2. Nor sometimes begins a sentence, but in this case a negative proposition has preceded it in the foregoing sentence.

3. In some cases, usually in poetry, neither is omitted, and the negation which it would express is included in nor.

Simois nor Xanthus shall be wanting there. That is, neither Simois nor Xanthus.

4. Sometimes in poetry, nor is used for neither, in the first part of the proposition.

I whom nor avarice nor pleasures move.
