    Help with some simple grammar
    I just wanted to ask a rather simple question regarding proper grammar for a short sentence.

    I can't decide which wording is grammatically correct. The sentence is "Samantha nor I did anything wrong."

    Is this a grammatically correct way of wording the sentence or would "Samantha did nothing wrong nor did I." be correct?

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    The second is more correct as the first should be started with NEITHER. Neither Samantha nor I... Or... Neither of us. Depends on the structure of the sentence before and after.

    You could also go with Samantha AND I did nothing wrong, to keep it simple and direct.
