                 Whether / Weather
                 'Whether' starts a sentence or joins two parts of a sentence when the sentence
                 is saying or asking about something that might happen. Sometimes the word
                 can be replaced by 'if'. Sometimes the word is followed by 'or' or 'or not'.
