Dua Subject dihubungkan

When two subjects are connected by not only …………… but alsoeither … or, or neither …. nor, the subject that is closer to the verb determiners whether the verb is singular or plural.

Example :

Melihat Paralel Structurre dari contoh diatas. Bentuk Gramatical yang sama seharusnya mengikutimasing bagian dari Kata sambung yang berpasangan.*

Example :
- the research project will take both time and money. ( both + noun + and + noun )
- yesterday it not only rained but ( also ) snowed ( not only + verb + but also + verb )
- I’ll take either chemistry or physics next quarter ( either + noun + or + noun )
- that book is neither interesting nor accurate ( neither + adjective + nor + adjective )

Notice the parallel sturcture in the examples. The same grammtical form should follow each part of the paired conjunctions. *
paired conjuntions are also called “ correlative conjunctions “
