327. A general negation is not destroyed—

    By a following ... quidem, not even, or nōn modo, not only:
      numquam nōn modo ōtium, sed bellumquidem nisi nefārium concupīstī; (Cat. 1.25), not only have you never desired repose, but you have never desired any war except one which was infamous.
    By succeeding negatives each introducing a separate subordinate member:—
    1. eaque nesciēbant nec ubi nec quālia essent (Tusc. 3.4) , they knew not where or of what kind these things were.
    By neque introducing a coördinate member:—
    1. nequeō satis mīrārīneque conicere (Ter. Eun. 547) , I cannot wonder enough nor conjecture.
