"Ani ja, ani ty, ani ona."

Translation:Neither I, nor you, nor she.

December 16, 2015



Neither/nor should be used only for two objects, not three.

Plus, as a standalone it cannot be 'she'. Possibly a safe way out is 'not me, not you and not her'

I have a translation test text for soon-to graduate students of EN philology of certain PL universities that include an ani-ani-ani structures, and none make a meaningful translation because, like here, they insist on a neither-nor-nor structure. IT DOES NOT WORK, YOUR TEACHERS ARE WRONG. You need something like: 'Not I, not you and not she', but even then we are still breaking the "who's she, the cat's mother?" rudeness rule.

How do you know when the meaning is either or neither?

Well, technically the meaning is 'neither', it's just English that usually can construct a sentence either (sic!) with 'either' or 'neither'.

But "ani" surely shows negation.

I would say a sentence like: None of us can do it- 'Not I, nor you, nor her'

Would not better English be :"Neither me, you or her" ?

"Ani ja." is translatet with "Me neither." But in the sentence "Ani ja, ani ty, ani ona." me neither is not correct! But WHY???

What would be your whole answer?

September 21, 2018


The following sentence sounds good for me: "Neither me, nor you, nor she." !?

September 22, 2018


This one works.

Neither I, nor you, nor she can be correct if the first clause of a sentence where these pronouns refer to the sibject of a sentence. Eg. Neither I, not you, nor she have enough money.

In your "Eg", you meant "nor you" and not "not you", right. And I think that "has" would be better than "have".

Complaint: nor I was accepted as a sentence or a standalone clause in a previous answer but here you have to start with neither.
