Possible Duplicate:
Still confused with “neither…nor…”

...can't see neither A nor B.

Is that grammatically correct?

Or is this?

...can see neither A nor B.

What if "can't" was used?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

"Can't see neither" is a double negative:

Can not see neither A nor B

The second example is more correct:

I can see neither A nor B

You can also say:

I cannot see A or B

You can't use two negatives in single English sentence.

I can see neither, A nor B

is correct

By the way, you don't need the comma. – MrHen Jul 14 '11 at 21:05
