Consider the following sentence:
Dishwashers are not regarded as remarkable objects or luxurious.
as you know it is possible to use the two-word conjunction "neither .... nor ..." to combine two word groups and thus I could rewrite the aforementioned sentence like this:
Dishwashers and vacuum cleaners are regarded as neither remarkable objects nor luxurious.
However a grammar book I'm studying states that the answer is as follows:
Dishwashers and vacuum cleaners are regarded neither as remarkable objects nor as luxurious
is it ungrammatical to use neither after "as" ?
