Learn English – Let not A nor B or Let neither A nor B


I am wondering if this is correct, I know there is a "neither A nor B" rule but it sounds unnatural. This is to be engraved on a head stone, the tone is solemn rather than informal. Any help/suggesitons would be great.

"Let not our laughter nor our stride falter for we draw strength from your strength, we draw joy from your vibrancy; we carry on through your love."

Best Answer

"Let not our laughter nor our stride falter..." is correct English, and it sounds impressive as well.

The use of "nor" is to replace an "or" in a negative sense. The first "not" makes this phrase negative, and so "nor" is proper here.
