eether this or that: make your choice!

I don't know where he came from eyether!


I dunno... it's kind of fluid. Both would work in either case. I said eyether there, lol.

i don't believe that to be entirely true, to be honest. i do believe eyether is more prevelant in britain than america, but i also believe the history of that word would show that its changed back and forth over time in terms of pronunciation.

if you're interested in this, i can post the article where i got it from.
