Alternative . . .

. . . grammar doesn't exist EITHER. . .


(http://thewritepractice.com/how-to-use-either-neither-or-and-nor-correctly/)
". . . My mother . . . bought me the book I Judge You When You Use Poor Grammar. (By the way, it is equally correct to say “bad grammar.”) . . . Either is always paired with or, and neither is always paired with nor.  If you are matching either and nor, I hate to break it to you, but you’re doing it wrong.  Additionally, nor is generally not used where neither is not also used. . . example:“I fear man nor beast!” Jay proclaimed as Frank stared at the python coiled on the branch over his head. (Wrong.)
“I fear neither man nor beast!” Jay proclaimed as Frank stared at the python coiled on the branch over his head. (Right!) . . . Either is used when you are making a comparison between two ideas, and only one of the ideas will come to pass. Example . . . “Well,” said Frank, “either you start fearing, or you are camping by yourself.” . . . "
