neither 的用法?

以下例句neither的用法是否正確?意思是什麼?

Neither you nor him will be considered for the job position.

Update:

另外一個問題,下句如何翻譯?

『約翰繼續上班遲到。』

1.Tom kept coming to work late.

2.Tom kept late to work.

兩句用法都可以嗎?

keep 後面接動詞或形容詞都可以接嗎?

    1.Neither you nor he will be considered for this job position.

    Neither...nor.... 如果是主詞, 兩個都要用主詞, 如果是受詞

    兩個都要用受詞. 表示兩個都不是.

    2. keep 後面接動名詞.

    Tom kept coming to work late.

    但不可直接接形容詞, 因為形容詞前面一定要有 Be 動詞.

    所以下面一句應該是:

    Tom kept being late to work.

    Neither you nor him will be considered for the job position.

    Neither A nor B 是指“不是A也不是B”,在這一句中連接兩個主詞,所以應該要把 him(受格) 改為 he(主格)才對。

    will be considered 是被動句 →被考慮

    所以整句翻譯為→ 你和他都不被會列入這個工作職位的考慮人選。

    也就是→ 得到這個工作職位的人,不是你也不會是他。
