Weather or Whether??

This is one mistake that I sometimes see on twitter and I thought it would point it out.

Weather – This refers to how it is outside. Is it raining, snowing, sleeting?

The weather is beautiful outside. The sun is shining and it’s not too hot.

Whether – This word is used to introduce an alternative possibility.

Whether you like it or not, I’m going to buy you a birthday present.

  1. Hello.
    I know I’ve been making lots of mistakes in English on twitter.
    and at the same time,
    I sometimes see the English mistakes made by native English speakers.
    Those mistrakes by native speakers somehow make me relieved. haha

  2. Oh yes! Native English speakers make this mistakes and others all of the time. Typos, not thinking, or they really don’t know the difference. Oxy – your English is really great!
