    Whether or not

    Call him up and let me know whether or not he is coming to the party tonight.


    My question to you is in place of "whether or not" can we use just "whether" ? Does it change the meaning of the original sentence at all?


    Best regards,


    Abhishek

    Re: Whether or not

    Yes, you can.

    Both versions are correct and mean the same.

    Here are simple rules about the use of whether/whether or not.

    Re: Whether or not

    And "Call him up and let me know whether or not he is coming to the party tonight."
    is the same as
    "
    Call him up and let me know if he is coming to the party tonight."?
