I'm a bit confused about using the word though. It's often
used at the end of a sentence. For example:
house isn't very nice. I like the garden though.
you help me out and explain the usage of this word?
normally think of though as a conjunction introducing a contrastive
statement, and as the less formal and less forceful equivalent of
although and even though. Compare the following:
though it was suffocatingly hot, she was wearing a thick woollen
she was very fond of him, she had no intention of marrying him.
could try to phone her before we go, though we might miss
the train if we do.
in your example, Tamas, though is used as an adverb as the less
formal equivalent of however. We use though and however
when we want to add a comment that seems to contradict or contrasts
with what has already been said. As in your own example, Tamas,
though often indicates an afterthought. Compare the following:
performed so well at interview I thought I would get the job.
However, it was not to be.
economic outlook is not very good. However, I can assure
you that nobody will lose his job.
sorry, I cant stay for lunch. Ill have a coffee, though.
a lovely sunny day! ~ Theres a chilly wind, though,
though / as if / like
though, as though and as if are subordinating
conjunctions. We use as if or as though when we want
to give an explanation for something which may not be correct:
looked at me as if / as though I were mad.
an umbrella. It looks as if / as though its going
cant understand why shes so keen on him. Its
not as if / as though hes good-looking or
spoken informal English, particularly American English, we sometimes
substitute like for as if and as though:
looked at me like I was stupid.
looks like its gonna rain.
speaking, like, meaning similar to, is a preposition
which can only be followed by a pronoun, noun or noun phrase. So,
if you want to be grammatically correct, make sure you use like
in this way:
all good curries, it was served with fresh coriander and nan bread.
me, she refuses to work after six o clock in the evening.
the phone you sound just like your mother. In fact, I always
think it is your mother.
