Someone told me that "eyether" is more correct than "eether."

I say "eether" because "eyether" is just uncomfortable to say.

edit: and I say neyether because I'm used to it I guess.

Are you sure you don't say "oitha"?

That's only the special Australians, the ones who ride kangaroos and have their babies eaten by dingoes, and don't know about this incredible place called high school. We call them bogans, scrubbos, yobbos... such people are usually found in Queensland (1 hour and ten years behind), and some in the rough parts of Sydney or Melbourne. South Australia has a few too. The majority of us can actually speak English to a reasonable standard. Our current prime minister is NOT one of this majority... but that's another topic altogether.

If you pronounce the "R" at the end of words, I'm am very proud of you, and you would be the best Australian speaker of English I have ever heard..

Hmm, you miss the best of Australia in the US. You only get the stereotypical stuff... I'm sure if you came to Australia, you'd realise that the people who DON'T get on TV can actually speak English, generally.

Yes 'eyether' is the American and Canadian pronounciations. It's correctly pronounced 'eether' in other English-speaking countries

I'm from london and I tend to use both, it just depends on the context. Same way I sometime say "an" (like the a in cat) and sometimes say it more like "en".
#34
I use both depending on where it is in the sentence and what context it is in, i don't really take much notice of it to be honest.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

am i the only person who says "Eva"?

As in pronouncing the 'th' as a 'v'? That's more of an accent thing. Like people who say 'fought' instead of 'thought'

I use "eether", but when I was in London, I used "eyethah". (Damn Londoners and omitting the R's.)

(I speak English as a second language though, and only when I was in England or in English Class.)
