I am never quite sure whether to use nevertheless or nonetheless; they seem almost synonymous to me, but I think I might be missing a subtle distinction. Is there a difference, and if so, how do I determine which is right in different circumstances?
I am specifically thinking of sentences like this:
- I am busy Saturday, nevertheless I will come to your party anyway.
- I am busy Saturday, nonetheless I will come to your party anyway.
There is a question here that deals with a specific idiomatic usage, but I was thinking of the general type of usage, as given in the party example above.
