Reginald A. Fessenden
The Caspian Sea


Subject: Neither ... nor

Dear Ms. Lark,

Hello. This is an e-mail from Hong Kong. After reading the article about "Neither...nor." I'd like to ask you a question.

According to the article, whether the verb after "nor" is singular or plural depends on the noun nearest to the verb:

Since the noun nearest the verb (agent) is singular, so the verb should be singular.

But what if the noun nearest the verb is "I"? e.g. Neither you nor I like staying in a hostel.

Is it correct?

I really find it confusing. Please kindly help me out.

Hello Ralph ---

I saw in a letter to that you are interested in Reginald Fessenden. I am too.

As an amateur archaeologist who has worked in Azerbaijan I have come across many fascinating observations which seem to tie in very much with Reginald Fessenden's predictions about the deluged civilization.

I shall continue to explore various aspects of the relative flooding that took place in the region around 10, 000 to 6000 years ago. These are not apparent today for two very simple reasons: - tectonic uplift of the Caucasus has masked the possibility of observing / considering the flooded region, and the meltwater caused by the past ice age has long since melted causing the Caspian Sea to regress and cut off the Manych gap waterway that connected the Caspian Sea to the Sea of Azov (Black Sea.)

For your interest I am attaching a draft copy of an article I presented at a scientific conference last year. It addresses some of the observations and interpretation I have made. You will also find the transcript of 'The Origins of the Book of the Dead' fascinating. Clearly much interdisciplinary work needs to be done to confirm the observations.

I would be interested in sharing information to help study and bring attention to this fascinating period in time. In doing so I suspect that the visionary thoughts that Fessenden had will be vindicated and hopefully open up a major line of archaeological study.

Are you aware of any other researchers interested in Reginald Fessenden's Archaeological / Mythological studies? It would be good to establish a network of contacts.
