    Re: How do you pronounce "either"?

    Does it really matter? Technically, both pronunciations are correct, depending on where you are and whose dictionary you're using.

    I say ee-ther, since I'm more used to the US English. (ee-ther is US English and eye-ther is British, right?).

    I don't know. I say ee-ther, but I know quite a few people in the US who say eye-ther.

    So far, ee-ther is winning.

    No. I am a Brit and I say "ee-ther", as do most of my peer group. People I know from the "posher" level of society tend to say "eye-ther"... but that's not set in stone. Like qamelian said, depends on context (ie where you are, who you're with) and what dictionary you're using.
