One That Puzzles Me

My students often confuse the words "rather" and "whether." Even though I'm from this area, I can't hear in the local dialect why the two words would sound enough alike to be interchanged.

Does anyone else see this very often?

I've not heard that usage--maybe it is regional and generational. Reminds me of a post on Comp. Mountain West.
