    if/whether

    When should I use IF and when should I use WHETHER?

    What is rhe difference between the two conjunctions? Is there any difference in meaning and usage?

    Thank you

    Re: if/whether

    Often no, but 'whether' does give greater emphasis to the choice. Also, use 'whether' before an infinitive- I don't know whether to go.
