quick question.

how do you pronounce "either"?

a) eye-ther

b) ee-ther

that's all. as soon as you answer you may leave, you won't be wanted/needed any longer. lets make this as quick as possible.

I've never used the word out loud in actual conversation - only in prose, like here in this thread - so, I am afraid that I CANNOT ANSWER YOUR QUESTION.

eether.

zoomers, please do some research into other annoying words like often (off-ten, or offen), schedule (shed-yule, or skedyule) and some others when I think of them.

thanks.

FYI i say Offen and Skedyule. I'm right like that, ok?
