|Assunto:||Neither of them x none of them|
(a) "Neither of the forum visitors seems interested"
(b) "None of the forum visitors seem..."
According to most commercially available grammar manuals, (a) takes a singular verb and (b), a plural one.
At some point (the ascertainment of which certainly would englighten the industrious ESL learner) we could use both structures interchangeably. If none of us will take usage for granted, neither of us should.
Thank you. At whatever point.
