A: “Nigh” means “near,” but it’s not often used these days outside some fixed expressions such as “the end is nigh” or “that’s well-nigh impossible.” Many will know it mainly from the Christian children’s song line “stay by my cradle ‘til morning is nigh.”

Synonyms of "Nigh" and their differences

Q: I fear to go out at nigh. I am afraid of going out at night. ve I fear of going out at night. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: (fear of/ afraid of) are often interchangeable. and in the example you provided, they are both correct.
but in other contexts, "fear of" has more of a respect sound to it. while "afraid of" would just imply the terror felt.

also fear of verb(ing) = fear to verb (inf)
personally, I find "I fear to verb(inf)" sounding a bit off, even though it's grammatically correct but I guess "I fear of + ing" sounds more natural.

even "I fear +ing" is commonly used. ex. I fear going out at night.

they all mean the same thing, just some are more common than others.

Q: nigh ve near ve next arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Nigh is simply a synonym of near, but is not something you'd hear spoken. (It's archaic and literary sounding.) "The end is nigh."
The different between near and next is a matter of specificity. To say that two things are near (in time or space) means simply that they are close to each another. However, next goes further and means that they are immediately adjacent (d'à côte).
Next has another use, as well. It means puis, ensuite.
Q: nigh ve nine ve What's the difference between the two pronunciations arasındaki fark nedir?
A:
nigh means "near or approaching"
ex- The departing time was nigh so they said their goodbyes
nine is a number
ex- I have none cats
