The Two Ronnies

Hugely popular and long-running sketch show that established Ronnie Corbett and Ronnie Barker as two of the biggest names in British comedy

Does anyone remember a sketch about a pronunciation survey about "either/neither"?

A friend is convinced he once saw something like this- it sounds like a classic Ronnie Barker linguistic gymnastics thing but all searches of the web have turned up a blank.

Is my friend imagining this or was there really such a sketch?

Most definitely.
I remember it.
It was a news item

I bet Max will be thrilled to bits to get that reply - 5 years 7 months after he asked the question. :)

I like the Two Ronnies sketches that involve wordplay.
