Word:

Nor

Pronunciation: nôr
conj.1.A negative connective or particle, introducing the second member or clause of a negative proposition, following neither, or not, in the first member or clause (as or in affirmative propositions follows either). Nor is also used sometimes in the first member for neither, and sometimes the neither is omitted and implied by the use of nor.
Provide neither gold nor silver, nor brass, in your purses, nor scrip for your journey.
- Matt. x. 9, 10.
Where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt.
- Matt. vi. 20.
I love him not, nor fear him.
- Shak.
Where neither party is nor true, nor kind.
- Shak.
NOR - Not OR.

The Boolean function which is true if none of its inputs are true and false otherwise, the logical complement of inclusive OR. The binary (two-input) NOR function can be defined (written as an infix operator):

A NOR B = NOT (A OR B) = (NOT A) AND (NOT B)

Its truth table is:

A | B | A NOR B --+---+--------- F | F | T F | T | F T | F | F T | T | F

NOR, like NAND, forms a complete set of Boolean functions on its own since it can be used to make NOT, AND, OR and any other Boolean function:

NOT A = A NOR A

A OR B = NOT (A NOR B)

A AND B = (NOT A) NOR (NOT B)
