When I was a journal editor I used to look out for instances when ‘which’ was incorrectly used in place of ‘that’. In that instance, I knew the correct answer. (Reply if you need the rule explained). But, until today, I remained uncertain about the difference between ‘nevertheless’ and ‘nonetheless’. I was also uncertain if one, or both, should be hyphenated or separated into three words. Today, over lunch, I asked a former mentor for his opinion. He confessed he did not know the answer. Thanks to free wifi at the hamburger joint where we were lunching, I searched the web. The entries from the Cambridge English Dictionary indicate, a) they are synonymous, and, b) both are treated as a single word.
