「though & even though」差異在哪?如何使用?

    

though和even though的用法及差異

 

though 作從屬連接詞時引導副詞子句,表示「雖然…」,可放在句首或句中。

雖然茉莉不感到疲倦,她還是在晚上十點就睡著了。

!口語用法放句尾。

比利昨天沒來參加我的生日派對,不過他哥哥有來。
 
!注意在中文裡,「雖然」常和「但是」連用,但英文中的 though 則絕對不可與 but 連用。這是因為在英文中,兩個子句只能用一個連接詞連接,而 but 是一個對等連接詞。
 
 

even though 的意義與 though 相近,表示「雖然…;儘管…」,只是語氣更為強烈。通常是描述已經發生的事實或存在的狀況,可放在句首或句中。

Even though Tyler has been busy lately, he still goes to basketball practice three days a week.
