neither    : [n'iðɚ] [n'ɑɪðɚ]
Neither \Nei"ther\ (n[=e]"[th][~e]r or n[imac]"[th][~e]r; 277),
a. [OE. neither, nother, nouther, AS. n[=a]w[eth]er,
n[=a]hwae[eth]er; n[=a] never, not hwae[eth]er whether. The
word has followed the form of either. See {No}, and
{Whether}, and cf. {Neuter}, {Nor}.]
Not either; not the one or the other.

If both remain alive. --Shak.

Note: Neither was formerly often used where we now use nor.
"For neither circumcision, neither uncircumcision is
anything at all." --Tyndale. "Ye shall not eat of it,
neither shall ye touch it." --Gen. iii. 3. Neither is
sometimes used colloquially at the end of a clause to
enforce a foregoing negative (nor, not, no). "He is
very tall, but not too tall neither." --Addison. " `I
care not for his thrust' `No, nor I neither.'" --Shak.
