Whether or if? Anyone?
Hey, it's me again!
Just thought of another question that keeps happening when I try to write, whether or if. Does this happen to anyone else or am I the only one? Whether and if seem to have exactly the same definition, so how do you decide whether/if to use whether or if (intended pun ;)?
I came across this most recently when I was writing my friend in Chicago, "I don't know (whether or if) she knows or not, but it will be a nice surprise (whether or if) she has been there or not."
What do you guys think, whether or if?
