Weather or Whether
Get a memory trick to remember the spelling of "weather" and "whether."
People often have trouble remembering which word is spelled "weather" and which word is spelled "whether." Here's my memory trick:
Weather (such as a storm) affects the sea, and "sea" is spelled with an "ea" just like "weather."
Weather affects the sea.
The other spelling ("whether") is a conjunction that introduces choices: I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Just remember the "sea" trick for "weather," and then you know that "whether," the conjunction, is the other spelling.
