    Maybe Teacher Tdol will explain the difference. (I would say nevertheless.)

    :)

    Tdol, do you mean all 3 ?
    Can "Nethertheless", "Nonetheless" and "Either" be used in the same way ?

    "Either" means "Nethertheless" or "Nonetheless". In other words, choose one or the other. They are equally valid. If your choice is based on which is correct to use then "Either" is definitely the right choice.

    Yes, I agree with Tdol both have the same meaning and are used in formal communication. Perhaps "nevertheless" has a higher usage frequency than "nonetheless". Another difference has to do with word order. "Nonethless" can occur in final position as in: The texts are old but a lot of people are interested, nonethless.

    Re: Nevertheless\Nonetheless

    Hello!

    Well, I thought the right answer was "nevertheless", because It'doesn't sound good, 'nonetheless", , anyway, you know better the same meaning of this two words..

    bye!
