Pronounce: EE-ther or EYE-ther?
Yes, depends on sentence structure, or even context
I pronounce it both ways
get a dictionary...
Ee-ther usually, but Eye-ther feels right sometimes, especially when I'm using the word by itself. "I don't feel well ee-ther." "I would like eye-ther the duck or the beef, not the chicken." Seems pretty arbitrary.
I thought it depended on the structure of the sentence.
For ex sayEYE-ther if there's a vowel after the word: EYE-ther elephants or horses but you pronouce EE-ther when a constant is after: EE-ther ducks or pigsYou do the exact same when your pronouncing the word the. ThEE w/ vowel & the the w/ con
Sometimes I say eether and sometimes I say eye-ther
Say it however you feel. "Eether" is the intended pronunciation.
Need a both button.
EYE-ther makes me feel British. :)
It truly depends on the context.
"He wants EE-ther this or that,"
"We go EYE-ther here or there,"
I say it either way; it just depends. But usually it's EYE-THER
But it depends on the sentence
I say eye-ther
It depends on the context of the sentence I'm speaking
Depends on my mood!
geez it took me forever to understand this question! I had to look at the comments just to understand it! ha but EE mostly!
Depends on the context. I said eye-ther though bc I feel I use that more often.
I say "eye-ther way" and "I don't like that ee-ther" so it depends on what sentence I use it in.
I say both, but I think most often I say "eye-ther". At least, I know that most folks around here say "ee-ther" and I get the same weird look when I say "either" that I do when I say "pro-gress"
Both but mostly EE.
Both, it depends on the context "you EE-ther" or "EYE-ther you.."
ee eye ee eye... oh
I think I say it both ways, but more often EE
I say EEther or, But EYEther this or that
This is a quiz that NEEDS A THIRD ANSWER!!!!!!! everyone says it both ways!
Depends on the phrase I'm using, I use both.
When I first read this, I thought it was talking about Ethernet XD
How about ayther ;)
Either way works for me. <~~~ I pronounced that with an EE
Why dose it matter?
AFAIK eyether was introduced by Prince Albert who was German where ei is pronounced that way and it became a fad.
In other words : eyether is wrong.
Ok I think the pattern is dependent on the phonemes of the previous word. For example: "me EEtheir," "no, EYEtheir this or that," "it was EYEtheir one or the other."
I hate when people say eye ther
I use both. I'm not sure if there's a pattern to my usage though.
I don't know anyone who says eye.
Both, usually EE
I will use either eether or eyether. It depends on what I'm saying.
I say eether. I think I've heard eyether once or twice. Sounds funny that way to me.
I think I use 'eether' more, but, like everyone else said, it depends on what I'm saying.
Both. Similarly as others have stated previously - depends on the context.
It actually depends on the context, but usually the former I believe.
Both. Depends on the context of the sentence.
I actually prefer eyether bit will say eether! Depends on what context
