英语:单词though和although的区别

单词though和although在大多数情况下是可以互换使用,用来表示“尽管”的含义:

  • Although/though the sun was shining, it was very cold.
  • He disagreed with us, although/though he didn’t tell us.
  • The house is lovely, although/though the garden is a bit small.

但在下面的三种情况下,单词though和although不能互换:
1, 用在句子末尾(口语中):

  • He disagreed with us. He didn’t tell us, though.
  • The house is lovely. The garden is a bit small, though.

2, 用在短语as though中(和as if同义):

  • It sounds as though/as if you had a nice holiday.
  • He acted as though/as if nothing was wrong.

3, 和even连用,构成短语even though:

  • Even though Arsenal played well, they lost the game.
  • I took my coat, even though it wasn’t cold.

另外,although比though要更正式一些,although多用于书面语,而though同时可用于书面语和口语。另外,短语even though表示的语气要比although强烈。
