When used to give additional information to a negative statement nor can very often be translated by non plus preceded by a negative verb: she hasn't written, nor has she telephoned = elle n'a pas écrit, et elle n'a pas téléphoné non plus; I do not wish to insult you, (but) nor do I wish to lose money = je ne veux pas vous offenser, mais je ne souhaite pas non plus perdre de l'argent.
