<![CDATA[Whether and Weather]]>Sat, 16 Sep 2017 09:12:39 GMThttp://sroneykor.com/blog/whether-and-weather​This popular chidren's poem is also a good tongue-twister for pronunciation practice. Distinguishes "w" from "wh":
Whether the weather be fine,
Whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Whether the weather be hot,
We'll weather the weather,
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not.

From Robert Louis Stevenson, "A Child's Garden of Verses"
