What Are Their Main differences?
Despite being rare to see 'nither' in standard English, it is good to know its meaning. As separate terms we mean when there are not any misspellings 'neither' has its own meaning, while 'nither' has another meaning.
'Neither' as a determiner, is used before singular nouns to mean none of the two. As a pronoun, it is used alone with no nouns afterwards and it comes straight before the verb. As an adverb it is used to agree on a positive sentence which was mentioned before. When it is a conjunction, it is usually followed by nor.
is not common in the English language. But it can have different meanings in the Scottish language as follows:
- Scot word of the transitive verb blight.
- Scot word for the intransitive verb shiver.
- The dialectal difference in the term neither.
'Nither' can be the misspelling of the term 'neither'.
Let us take a look at their differences in a table.
|It can be a determiner, pronoun, adverb or conjunction.||Scot word for the verb ‘blight’|
|None of the two||Scot word for the verb ‘shiver’|
|This is the standard form of this term in the English language.||Scot word for neither / misspelling of neither|
Whenever there is a misspelling or we are dealing with a Scottish context, 'neither and 'nither' have the same meanings.
