I'm studying inversion and fronting in English and these two questions popped up in my head that I couldn't find an answer to.
- Should I use inversion when using neither...nor with imperatives?
Which one is grammatically correct?
a. Neither will you go there nor (will you) give her a call.
b. Neither go there nor call her.
- Is inversion grammatically compulsory when we use not only...but (also) structure? If yes, can we use it in spoken English I mean is it common in everyday conversation by native speakers to skip inversion here?
Are both of these sentences correct? I know 1 is correct I'm struggling with 2.
a. Not only are they noisy, but they're rude.
b. Not only they are noisy, but they're rude.
